Melissa Julien: 3rd MAIP All-Star from BIC

2/20/2016 Unknown 0 Comments

BIG BIC congratulations to Melissa Julien who will be interning this summer at DigitasLBi as one of an elite group of students chosen for the 4A's prestigious Multi-Cultural Advertising Internship Program (MAIP). Melissa is a graduate of Hunter College with a BA in English and is currently in BIC's PR track. 

Each year, undergraduate and graduate students are selected for the 10-week paid summer internship at a 4A's member advertising agency. Students gain practical work experience, establish key industry contacts, and become better prepared to land a full-time job in communications when they graduate. Upon completion of the program, interns become members of the MAIP Alumni Association, a close-knit family of over 2,600 MAIP graduates that fosters the development of future MAIP interns as well as the professional development of the program's alumni.

Melissa joins Chris Villanueva (BIC '15) who is now a copywriter at TBWA and Ivan Ramirez who will be graduating this Spring as BIC beneficiaries of the 4A's MAIP. Because most graduate students are active professionals, fewer grad students apply for and receive this honor. Nonetheless, BIC is proud to have had a MAIP recipient every year since BIC launched in 2013.
