Last week, I finally convinced myself to watch the Super Bowl for the very first time. I was never a huge fan of football, but this time- I figured I had to join the bandwagon to support our own Seahawks team! 😉 It was super fun and to be honest, I love how the whole town celebrates together- it just feels so great seeing everyone so happy and so excited for the same thing. 🙂
Another thing I was really looking forward to was the Super Bowl ads. I mean…seriously, I learned about the big deal about Super Bowl in my marketing class (yes, I know this could be a shock to some of you and yes, this is a little embarrassing, but I had to admit it :P) Unfortunately though, I didn’t really get to watch a lot of ads during the game, because people were just too excited even during the commercials (very understandably so ;))! So I decided to go to the Chalk Talk event hosted by AAF Seattle with some of my colleagues and see what the experts had to say about this year’s Super Bowl ads. I was also curious because out of the ones I did see during the game (or online before the game), I wasn’t as impressed as I thought I’d be.
Although thousands of people have already discussed the Super Bowl websites on the internet, and it’s been a week since Super Bowl…I thought I’d still chime in some of my personal opinions:) :
So, you say you’re doing “client services” in an ad agency. What exactly do you do?
Now that I keep telling everyone how much I love my summer internship experience (and my current job!), I get this question a lot. In Wunderman, we call ourselves “strategic client partners,” but to folks outside of this industry, it’s sometimes hard to grasp what we actually do. In fact, some people just assume the stereotype that all we do is deliver messages and “make clients happy.” So, what’s so hard about this job?

While Nora was enjoying her life spending time with family and traveling around Europe (as seen in her recent posts), I spent the majority of my summer interning at Wunderman. Am I jealous? Of course. But do I regret anything? Not at all! To be honest, I probably have had a summer just amazing as hers- I really couldn’t have imagined a better internship experience! Especially now that I’m hired on in the Global Deployment department, nothing can make me happier. 🙂
I’d definitely love to share more about my experience, but for now I’d like to share my post on “What it takes to succeed in the advertising industry” on our company blog. Please click the following link to read on. I’d love to hear your thoughts!
