The InternView with Antonio Serros


Name: Antonio Serros

Hometown: California

School: Columbia University 

Major(s): Art History and Economics

Current team you're working on? Ogilvy Consulting

What is your favorite internship memory thus far? I don't have one in particular—I've just really enjoyed getting to work with such intelligent, motivated and self-reliant people. I've never seen so many in one place!

Why Ogilvy? Ogilvy knows brands better than anyone. How else could it have become a brand name in the advertising industry? I knew that if I wanted to grow my skills in advertising and marketing, I had to learn from the best. 

What do you wish you knew about Ogilvy before you started? I wish I knew that Ogilvy's structure is very horizontal—even as an intern I've been granted the latitude to pursue more (traditionally) senior level project. 

Go-to office outfit? Chinos, a cotton tee and dad shoes. 

Guilty pleasure? Indulging in the free iced coffee several times a day.

Proudest moment to date? Being a first generation college student.

Favorite thing to do in NYC? Eat ByChloe (another guilty pleasure) and people watch in Washington Square Park.
