A 4-night series with a mission to provide survival skills and to make professional connections for interns in advertising,​ media and marketing intern programs.

​We'll bring in knowledgeable speakers from all areas of advertising to share their expertise and stories. These summit nights will be hosted at various agencies & companies and ​will have a focus on themes like: networking etiquette, work/life harmony, project and time management​, resume building critique, selling yourself, and making the most of your internship.
Each night will be an opportunity to prepare interns for their first advertising job, to meet one another and to gain a deeper understanding of what it takes to make it in LA's creative and diverse advertising community.
​Attend one session or all four, and check back often as we confirm more speakers and details!
