An “intern-view” with Jessica Alessandra, one of Quinlan’s five new interns.

What school do you go to and what year are you?

I go to Syracuse University. I’m going to be a junior in the fall.
What is your major and what made you pursue that path?

Advertising – I didn’t decide to become an advertising major until the end of my sophomore year.  I think what really intrigued me about advertising is how powerful it is and how it can basically make or break your brand.
How did you find out about Quinlan & Company?

I was searching local internships in Buffalo and I found a listing that Quinlan & Company was looking for media interns.

What department are you interning with and who is your Boss?

Media- Julia Vona

What is your favorite experience so far?

I don’t really have a specific favorite experience just yet. I think it’s cool seeing a lot of things I’ve learned at school being applied in a real business setting.

What made you interested in the agency setting?

I still don’t know what I want to do as a career when I graduate, so I figured at an agency I can get an idea of what everyone does. It doesn’t just limit me to one thing.
What’s the most important thing you’ve learned so far?

This is a setting that I’ve never worked in before, so I think all of it has been really beneficial. It definitely has helped me with my ability to multi-task and my professionalism.
What do you hope to learn in the future while working at Quinlan?

I hope that I can get more involved in the future.  As of now, I’ve been doing a lot of working with numbers and the buying of the media, but I think it would be cool to be able to contribute to other departments and see all of the other aspects of running a campaign
