This is the virginal (mini-)blog of Molly The Intern (I feel the capital letters lend a certain cachet to my job description.) However, far from being a general dogsbody – the role so frequently assigned to those undertaking an internship – I am actually pleasantly surprised to find myself entrusted with a fair share of genuine responsibilities. Drafting the job description for a new Senior Account Executive was just one of these.

The fact that Stand are looking for a new SAE to join the team will not be news to those who follow the ‘Standsays’ tweets, but these followers  may not know what working for Stand would actually be like. I am only two and a half days into my internship but, based on my experience so far, any potential SAEs could do a lot worse than working for Stand! The office is small but friendly, and filled with welcoming, diligent, creative, cake-loving, and highly intelligent colleagues. I have learnt a huge amount even in this short time (you can put beer in cake!) Indeed, it’s a shame I can’t put myself forward for the SAE role – of course there’s the minor obstacle of that pesky 2 to 4 years prior experience prerequisite standing in my way…. 2 to 4 years (imagine balancing in the left hand)… 2 days (imagine balancing in the right)…Yeah, it doesn’t quite add up, but hey ho and a bottle of rum. If my internship is cut short after my superiors read this blog I could always become a pirate…
