Title: Account Services Intern
Here for: Summer 2017
Where did you go to school and why the heck did you go there?
I just graduated from the University of South Dakota – it was a smaller college campus with a bigger university atmosphere. It was far enough away from my hometown, but still in reasonable driving distance if I ever needed to see my family.
Why did you choose a career in advertising?
I chose advertising as a career because of my love for Don Draper of “Mad Men.” But I’ve always been intrigued by advertising ever since I learned how it helps establish a brand – I truly believe that advertising changes the perception of everything and is a field that’ll never go away.
What was your favorite class in college?
I would say my Event Marketing and Management course because of the hands-on work we had to do outside of the classroom.
Try to name one thing you like about interning at SKAR.
There’s always food in the kitchen and dogs in the office. The people working at SKAR are pretty great too.
What was your favorite toy as a child?
I would spend hours playing with my Barbies and Bratz dolls, but I think Barbies will always be my favorite.
What app do you use most frequently?
I would say it’s a close tie between Facebook and Instagram … depends on the day.
If you inherited a million dollars, what would you do with it?
Travel the world with some close group of friends.
If you had to eat the same thing every day, what would it be?
Pickles, popcorn or Buffalo wings.
What is your favorite movie, music group and breakfast cereal?
Favorite movie would be between “Dirty Dancing” or “Me Before You”; favorite music group would be One Direction (RIP); and my favorite cereal would have to be Lucky Charms based on the pure nostalgia I have while eating it.
Name something about yourself that others might find interesting.
I’ve been in a total of four commercials.
What makes you laugh hysterically?
Any episode of “The Office” or “New Girl.”
What annoys the hell out of you?
When someone constantly interrupts people in the middle of a conversation … all you have to do is wait two more seconds till a person finishes a sentence.
