My name’s Siân, and for the past 10 months I’ve been interning at Friends. As with any design agency we are mostly powered by copious amounts of caffeine, but running to the kitchen for the emergency 3pm coffee-fix is barely the tip of the iceberg of my interning experience so far. At university I heard all the stories; from all expenses paid trips to Berlin, to sitting in a corner waiting for someone to suggest a tea round. Although I didn’t expect either of these extremes, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect.
The internship itself is a success story for business networking events, as it was through a friend of mine attending one such event that I was first put in contact with Friends in the first place. After a few emails I came in for a little chat and we arranged a one month internship. Nine months later and I’m still here… apparently I’m not that easy to get rid of.
