Pros:

I truly enjoyed every minute I spent interning for Hill. Walking in to the State Street building every day I felt a serious sense of accomplishment knowing that I would get to say that I spent time interning and working under some of the greatest people in advertising. I had a lot of fun and gained a great deal of knowledge and respect for the industry. I have nothing but great things to say for this experience and company.

Cons:

The department I interned for was not an area I had any experience or much interest in, at first. However by the end of the program I left knowing that I had learned and grown so much from being challenged in an area I did not even know existed. I have a deeper respect for photography and the art buying department.

However I do wish that I got to specialize in something that I am more focused on.

Advice for other students:

It is definitely hard to get into this program but if you do get the opportunity to join, take it for all you can. I took time to explore other departments while I was there and really got to know a lot of great people.

Pros:

Having the name Hill Holliday on my resume opened countless doors for me after my internship. The company's reputation and skills I learned while there are honestly the reason I believe I am at my job today. I feel very fortunate to have had worked at HH.

Cons:

It felt like I was one of the only interns (out of 40+) who wasn't there because they knew someone. It is very hard to get an internship (and job there after)if you don't have crazy connections. Because of this, many other interns were lazy and entitled but there is much to get out of the experience if you are willing to put in the effort.

Advice for other students:

If you don't have any connections you are going to have to work your butt off to get your foot in the door, but once you are in it is more than worth it.

Pros:

I had the opportunity to sit in during a lot of team meetings, which helped me learn the day-to-day processes of the agency. My mentor had also been an HHCC intern, so he was really invested in making sure I got as much exposure as possible. Even if I couldn't perform a task, he often showed me steps as he completed the projects himself, just so I would know what went on. I also gained a lot of great networking connections, and when there were opportunities for work within the agency, I was contacted by the HR department to apply.

Cons:

The agency had weekly meetings run by different departments so interns could get to know different areas of the agency and how it worked. The problem is that they were on Wednesdays, and I was a Tues/Thurs intern so I couldn't go. Also, towards the end of the semester, my client was shooting commercials in California and my workload slowed down significantly.

Advice for other students:

Work as hard as you can and make as many connections as possible.

Pros:

The work that I was doing was what an entry level position in Account Management would be responsible for.

I felt like I was able to add real value to the agency.

I had enough work to keep me busy and was able to touch upon different areas of the agency like account planning and digital projects.

I had an incredible support system - from my AAE on the CVS account to the HR department - I was able to capitalize on my strengths and receive helpful feedback on areas to improve upon

This definitely deeply impacted how quickly I was able to get a job after I graduated from college.

Cons:

Did not sit with my account team - which was both a blessing and a curse. Was able to sit with all of the interns which was a bit of a bonding experience, and was helpful that we could also learn from each other

Advice for other students:

Ask lots of smart important questions

Be a sponge and listen carefully to learn everything about the industry

Diligently do your work and understand that things should be done quickly and efficiently

Communicate with your supervisor to better improve your internship experience

Pros:

My internship at Hill Holliday allowed me to learn the inside of the new business process at ad agencies. I loved it. I worked on several RFPs and CRM systems to keep in touch with clients. It's incredible how relationship based this business is and how an agency really has to think about their own positioning. I was also able to work on a few Liberty Mutual campaigns (good to see the account planning/mgmt side as well). I loved all my co-interns and managers at Hill Holliday!

Cons:

- Data work.
- Tough to land jobs without hard skills (like design tools or digital skills).

Advice for other students:

Pros:

- Hill Holiday is a great ad shop.

- The media planner took the time to teach me DART, Atlas, and basic ad trafficking.

Cons:

I'm not a big fan of SEO in general.

Advice for other students:

- Learn about ad servers.

Pros:

Hill Holiday was a great place to spend my fall internship. I really enjoyed the people, office environment, and work. They are also very supportive of interns. I worked on the Libery Mutual account (you may have seen the tv ads). I did a lot of general organization and polishing of decks for client meetings. I was also tasked with a competitive analysis with recommendations for positioning.

Cons:

While the summer internship positions are paid, the fall internship (mine) is for credit only. It's was also difficult for me to get into the flow of work without being there 40+ hrs a week.

Advice for other students:

I was very impressed with Hill Holiday. My advice is to try getting advertising internships as early as you can and stay in touch with everyone you meet at the agency.
