“I spent 10 weeks - during the summer of my second year - as the marketing intern at Rare. Previous to Rare, I had completed three other internships in marketing and PR. None came even close to teaching me what I learned at Rare. My title was Marketing Executive, and yes, I took care of all things to do with marketing. But looking back, it was also a management role. I proposed my ideas, eventually got the go ahead, managed my time, my budgets, organised and liaised with all the parties involved and executed the plan. Some of the tasks I set out to do, I knew nothing about. However, I had the support of the Rare team. They always told me if something wasn't good enough or if I needed to do better - they also told me when I'd done a great job. You don't get that kind of honesty and support in many work environments. The great thing was if I pulled it off, I got all the credit. The flip side was if something went wrong, it was my project and there's no one to hide behind at Rare. If you're willing to listen and to be taught from a team that accept only the highest standards, this could be a great place for you to intern.
I've now started my full time job as a Fellow on the WPP Fellowship. Though it comes with its own challenges, working at Rare thoroughly prepared me and I'm grateful for the opportunities and responsibilities I was given there. Rare taught me that work is what you make it. It's how you treat and engage with the people around you.”

“The beauty of being an intern at Rare is that even the smallest of your contributions is noticed. Everything you do counts, so if you think you’re letting yourself in for a few weeks of well-paid boredom then think again. I promise you this: not a minute will go by during your time as a Rare intern when you are not challenged, inspired, entertained or all three. This internship is unlike any other out there and not only would I recommend it in an instant, I’d gladly do it again in a fraction of that time.”
