Seeking Reflections on the Internship Experience in Advertising Agency Settings

My name is Chris Boulton. I’m a doctoral student in Communication at UMass, Amherst and I’m developing a dissertation about entering the advertising industry. Specifically, I want to hear from a wide spectrum of people who’ve done internships at advertising agencies—-an understudied and oft-misuderstood juncture in the lives of many college students. I’m curious to know, what was this initiation like for you? What were your expectations going in? Were you disappointed? Pleasantly surprised? What was encouraging or discouraging about the process?

If you agree to participate in my study, I will send you an open-ended survey over email. You can take up to a week to compose your answers and would be free to elaborate as little or as much as you like. As in all my research, I will follow the standard Human Subjects protocol which makes your participation voluntary and your identity anonymous.

I am very interested in learning more about your internship experiences! To take part in my study, please contact me right away at the following address:
