Pros:

- Worked in Grey's healthcare group.
- Learned a ton about health advertising and the restrictions involved with advertising in this space (it's crazy restrictive).
- Intern project on Text4Baby, a mobile health service from J&J. The other interns and I were able to pitch a campaign to company leadership.
- Education seminars.
- My team was terrific to work for.

Cons:

The pharma/health space isn't nearly as exciting as other advertising.

Advice for other students:

Don't be afraid to find an advertising niche. For example, be cool at pharma advertising or be good at target tweens who like sports. Just be a pro at something.
