Lately, one of my biggest pleasures every morning has been to log into The New York Intern Projectto read the latest entries – so far I’ve seen some really fantastic and creative entries and I’m really impressed with the way the contest entrants have used social media to promote themselves and collect votes.  You guys are so smart and talented! If you’re still on the fence about entering or worrying about how to craft the perfect entry, I wanted to give you some tips (straight from a judge’s mouth) Read more […]

Three months ago, I stepped onto the 6th floor of 989 Avenue of the Americas in New York City. It was my first day of my internship. There were names to memorize, a company culture to learn, and a whole lot of public relations knowledge to soak up. It was a busy summer for sure, and I learned a lot about myself as well as about Affect and public relations. In the end, my experience can be summed up into three words: cupcakes, wigs, and action. Cupcakes. When an Affect team member has a birthday Read more […]

Looking for an apartment in New York City is no easy task. With my intern housing ending in mid-August, I had to look for a place to live. In college I could get away with attending a Renter’s Fair at school to find a rental property. Now in a big city with a lot more options, the task became much more difficult. At first, my roommate and I didn’t want to use a real estate broker. We saw it as someone who we would end up paying to do a job we could do on our own and didn’t see the value. We Read more […]

For my birthday in April, my mom contacted her astrologer and had her read my solar return. I’m not normally into horoscopes and star charts, but I figured if nothing else it would be entertaining. During the reading, she made one prediction that stood out to me in particular. I was going to get an internship or part-time job for the summer, and as a result of my work over the summer, someone would notice my work ethic and hire me full-time for the fall. Well guess what? As of September 1, this Read more […]

This summer I’m living at Educational Housing Services, which means I’m living in a building with other summer interns who work in various industries. Among my group of friends there are people who work for financial planners, fashion designers, hospitals, publishing companies and restaurants. Recently we had a family style meal in our communal kitchen and took turns debriefing our days. I was talking about my day when I was asked, “Pat, I get why a company publicizes themselves, but why do Read more […]

When we launched the New York Intern Project back in February, we weren’t quite sure what to expect. We knew we had a great strategy, plus a great platform and partner with Strutta, an interactive promotions company offering an intuitive contest builder that enables businesses to manage fully branded online contests. But it was impossible to fully predict how students and potential interns would react. Well, our concerns were not needed, as it was an overwhelming success with nearly 100 entries Read more […]

“Big TEAM, little me.” The baseball team at my high school always chanted this mantra to remind themselves that the accomplishments of the whole group were more important than any one person’s individual achievements. It’s catchy, right? Who knew that it could be applied outside of the sports world? At Affect, people are assigned to different accounts and work together on their tasks as a team to produce incredible results for our clients. At the staff meeting this morning, I watched as Read more […]

New York Intern Project winner Pat Gotham has started at Affect! He’ll be detailing his summer in the city right here. First up, Pat explains how internships don’t quite follow a syllabus. The first week of classes in college is typically known as “Syllabus Week.” Professors hand out the most important document for the class which outlines learning expectations, the books that need to be purchased, homework assignments, and dates of exams. Nothing is really taught or learned during those first Read more […]
