It’s been a great 4 months for us at Karsh Hagan. This internship was an amazing opportunity, and we took advantage of it all. This post is our farewell to the agency that picked us up, and took us from interns to professionals. Thank you for everything, KH. Without your help, we would just be college graduates!
Being in this place just feels real, authentic. It feels like home. People aren’t afraid of hard work here, but they’re also not afraid to be themselves and laugh loud.
To both my mentors particularly, Myles and Megan: you each had your own flair that somehow blended altogether in just the right way to grow both the accounts and copywriting side of this brain of mine. AdSmiths, we made quite a team. You ladies and gentleman are remarkable talents, and it was an honor to be a part of it. Catch you on the flip side!
As the Art Director intern, I was involved in bringing creative ideas to their full potential. Sometimes that meant going back to the drawing board, but there’s nothing more rewarding than seeing your group’s ideas come to life.
To those who are thinking about applying to KH, do it. There’s no better way to get in the door. Big thanks to Jarrod Stanley, you really looked out for me and taught me a ton.
Have fun, Do great work, Make money, Build business. Karsh Hagan’s mission is alive and well every time someone steps into the office. People are constantly working hard to exceed clients’ expectations. During my time as Media intern, I gained a deep understanding of what it is like to work in a Media department. With numerous insertion orders, invoices and proof-of-placements, organization became vital to my success. And, Excel became one of my best friends!
Although my time at Karsh Hagan is coming to an end, I will never forget the experience I’ve gained during my time here. Special thanks to Ivy, you were always there for me, and showed me the ropes of the Media department. And, thank you to all at KH for all you have taught me!
Charlie here. Accounts intern, #spring2015. The accounts service team at KH showed me how to take off the training wheels. You gave me real responsibility, guidance, and encouragement. This wasn’t the ordinary intern experience. We were apprentices gaining all the skills needed to step into a full time position and crush it.
This is a fast moving agency with big clients, intense deadlines, and a big name, but that doesn’t prevent us all from sticking together like family.
I walked into Karsh Hagan on the first day of this internship without the faintest idea of what I had gotten myself into.
Karsh Hagan doesn’t settle for the minimum; it pushes you farther than you thought you could go. You will emerge from this internship a changed person that is prepared for the professional world. You will learn, like I did, that teamwork is the heart of advertising. But when you come to a place like Karsh Hagan where it’s a family, you’ll understand that building a family leads to creating greatness.
Shout-out to my stellar mentor, David Fymbo, you are incredible, and I am forever in awe of you (Don’t let that get to your head).
Cheers, Karsh Hagan! We look forward to seeing all the amazing work you come up with!
