Frank Ginsberg is an advertising guru. Over the years, a lot of other labels have been affixed to him too. Founder. Chairman. Entrepreneur. Icon. Legend. But the one title Frank has always been most comfortable with is the one he started with. Art Director. His singular style, distinguished by its differentiating power, has helped build brands like Purina Cat Chow, U.S. Trust, Financial Times, Thomson Reuters, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Bacardi and Van Cleef & Arpels. Frank sits on the board of directors of the AAAA Creative Committee, The American Hospital of Paris Foundation, The Acting Company and the Children’s Hearing Institute, which honored him with the Jule Styne Humanitarian Award.

How can we do this differently? How can we do this better? Why isn’t anyone responding to my midnight e-mails?

A graduate of CUNY’s Baruch MBA program, Amy’s marketing acumen and global insights give her the ability to support client needs anywhere, anytime.

    Pros

    Coming out of college, finding the right company to start off your career is extremely vital. For some, it takes several stops in a short amount of time before they find the right fit. Luckily for me I got it right on the first try. AFG is the perfect company for someone trying to start their career in advertising. From the heartwarming people who genuinely care about you outside of the office, to the responsibility you are able to get right out of the gate, AFG has blown away my expectation of life in the workplace. It is extremely refreshing to know I can impact the company in a positive way all because of the trust my bosses have in me. If you want to learn as much as possible while having fun doing it AFG is the perfect place to be!

    Cons

    There is none at all right now!

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at afg& (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Most of the interns are international, so I get an interview through Skype. It was nice experience, very pleasant. I could feel the advertising atmosphere through the monitor. Interviewer was very kind and asking questions straight based to the company.
