Pros

encouraging in supporting the community and welcomes those that want to participate in pro-bono work

Cons

spread a little thin w/ clients when the new business continues to come in. great problem to have but difficult if you want to really focus on one or two clients.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Edelman (Seattle, WA)

    Interview

    Interviewed with 4 different people- many asked similar questions. I didn’t have enough work experience to really feel like I had good answers. At an agency, it’s hard to know exactly what team you’ll be on. So I was uncertain exactly what the internship was for.
