New Intern

Hello! New intern signing on—my name is Ariel and I am an Account Executive Intern here at Curiosity.

If you’re interested in joining the team here, I recommend it! But, if you’re new at this whole thing, there are a few things you should know:

There are two types of people in the world (for these purposes, at least). There are business people, like me, and arts and crafts people, like Warren…just kidding! Truth be told, the Creatives don’t actually sit around all day playing with paste and popsicle sticks, but I’ll to leave it to Warren to give you insight on their day-to-day lives.

I’m going to stick with what I know best—the Account side of the company. I haven’t been here very long, but the way I see it, Account people have the best of both worlds. They get to be businessy, and wear business clothes, and talk to clients, and fret about how their BlackBerrys are ‘blowing up’ (while secretly being happy about how needed they are).

But, unlike many other business people, their job description doesn’t consist of mulling over mundane lists of numbers and statistics. Account Executives at Curiosity get to play the parts of businessmen (and women, of course) while participating in the dynamic world that is advertising. They are both strategical and conceptual. They do research, work with clients, manage the finances, and are involved in the creative process. I really like that about working at a small company. Your job is so multifaceted that you never get bored. And having everyone involved and giving input ensures that only the best ideas get through the gate.

Plus, the office itself is inspiring. How can you not like a place that reminds everyone (via door sign) to be open-minded as they enter the office?

If you are intrigued by Curiosity Advertising, and what we do here, follow this blog! We will provide the inside scoop on what Curiosity is like behind closed doors.

Advice from Ariel (not to be confused with Wisdom by Warren):
Don’t take life too seriously, nobody makes it out alive.

Wow! You make advertising sound appealing. I'm an artist so I guess I'm on the paste and popsicle sticks side :P

I've heard that advice before, but I like it!
