ADwërks is excited to announce the arrival of our newest employee, Andrew Eide. Andrew has joined the team in the highly-coveted role of ADwërks Summer Intern and his official title is “The Intern Prodigy,” which is very fitting based on what we expect Andrew to accomplish over the summer.
Andrew’s job will include copywriting, social media management and account services, so he’ll certainly be busy over the next few months. As intimidating as that sounds, we’re confident Andrew can handle it all and more.
The Intern Prodigy is from Madison, SD and currently lives in Brookings, SD. He got his first degree from SDSU in Consumer Affairs (with a Business minor) and he will also have a degree in Advertising upon completion of his internship. Our job is to make sure all of Andrew’s schooling doesn’t go to waste.
According to Andrew, “The most important reason I’m excited about this internship isn’t necessarily working with one client or working on one campaign, but the experience of diving into the pool of advertising with a real advertising agency.”
In this year’s National Student Advertising Competition, Andrew’s team earned a second place finish and only lost by something like ½ a point, so he knows a thing or two about advertising already, even if he is just a student.
On the personal side of thing, Andrew’s non-work interests include:
- Astronomy – He’d like to become an amateur astronomer someday…which in his words means he “just wants to get a telescope.”
- Music – Andrew has been in bands in the past and he currently operates his own solo music project—mostly through Facebook—where he uploads his music, videos and designs. (Andrew has also requested that you not judge him for the low number of Likes on the page.)
- The paranormal – Mostly from a scientific standpoint, not necessarily the “who ya gonna call?” standpoint.
We’re excited to have Andrew with us this summer and we welcome you to welcome him when you have a chance. If you want to ask him any questions or anything, feel free to leave a comment below!
