Our second intern spotlight is on account service intern, Haley Greene. Haley is a Tampa, Florida native and will enter her third year at the University of Virginia in August where she is studying Leadership and Public Policy. She’s looking forward to getting outside of the classroom and learning through industry experience. At the end of her internship, she will be traveling across the pond to study abroad at Oxford University in England.
Q. What inspired you to go into advertising?
A. Don’t know if I’ve been inspired yet. I’m using my time at Schifino Lee to see if I’m inspired. I am enjoying it so far, though.
Q. What’s your favorite commercial or campaign?
A. I took a class titled Mass Media and American Politics last semester and I honestly find any ridiculous campaign ad amazing, all partisan preferences aside. Personal favorites include Gary Peters – The Loan Sharknado, Christine O’Donnell denying her involvement with witchcraft, Joni Ernst’s revealing her hands-on experience with hogs, and Christopher Knight’s iMovie rendition of Star Wars and how it relates to Rockingham County schools. The more ridiculous, the better.
Q. If you had a super power, what would it be?
A. This is a cop-out but I would definitely rather go to Hogwarts than have a super power.
Q. What do you hope to accomplish during this internship?
A. Gain some real experience in a real company instead of being shamelessly used by family members and friends to create logos and collateral for school organizations/family businesses/community events.
Q. Who is your favorite ad icon/character?
A. Does Don Draper count? If not, then anyone/anything that is not Flo from Progressive. Or both.
Q. What’s your guilty pleasure?
A. Ice cream. People might think this is a lame answer, but I eat a lot of ice cream. I would drop anyone/anything to be a Flavor Guru for Ben and Jerry’s. The job description can be found here.
