Moving Beyond The 30 Second Super Bowl Ad Spot This blog was provided by our intern, Daniela Ramirez. The biggest sports event of the year, the Super Bowl, is one of America’s most highly celebrated events. Millions tune in every year to watch two teams go up against one another, competing for the NFL’s biggest title. But this year I tuned in for a different reason, the ads. We all know how expensive these advertising spots for the Super Bowl are and generally only major brands can afford to make the investment. However, I often find myself thinking, “Why would you…Read More

What a Classroom Can’t Teach You, An Internship Can
August 8, 2016  |  By Ketner Group

This blog was written by our intern, Kamilla Rahman. As a college student I often find myself slaving for hours and hours in a textbook and trying to shove as much information as I can into my brain in order to do well on an exam. This is simply how college is structured; you’re given information, you’re expected to learn it, you’re tested over the materials and by the end of the semester you are dubbed proficient in that area of study. If a class isn’t focused around exams, the process will be the same except your proficiency in the subject…Read More
