The intern hack

Getting started

As young advertising students we all want that kickass internship.

But how do you stand out of the crowd and get your portfolio noticed?

Well we discovered that most advertising CEO’s and CD’s don’t have an online portfolio of their own. So we thought, let's give them one, not their own, but ours. So we bought the domain names of CEO’s CD’s we wanted to work for

and linked them to our personalised portfolio website.

Kesselskramer     www.erikkessels.nl
Fitzroy        www.jurbaart.nl
Achtung!       www.mervyntendam.nl
Havas WW       www.rodgerbeekman.nl
Selmore        www.poppevanpelt.nl


 

Now all that was left for us to do is congratulate them with their brand new portfolio site. For that we just send out a postcard that gave them something they never really wanted. In less than 24 hours we had several reactions. 

After multiple interviews and 3 job offers later, we landed our first advertising job at INDIE-Amsterdam.
