Agency Immersion Internship helped Jackson determine where he saw his future at an agency.

Welcoming a new team member is always an occasion worth celebrating – more hands on deck brings more efficiency and more client-focused solutions. When the “new” associate is a former intern, companies benefit from both a fresh perspective and established familiarity with company culture and day-to-day business.

Chernoff Newman prides itself on offering robust internship opportunities for the next generation of strategic communications and marketing leaders. In addition to our ongoing discipline-specific internships, we offer an Agency Immersion Internship that was launched during the pandemic as a crash course – think Agency 101– for students who may not have had access to previous marketing/communications experiences or internships, but who are passionate about the industry.

 This spring, Jackson Digieso, then a senior at the College of Charleston, was a part of Chernoff Newman’s second class of Agency Immersion Interns. After the 8-week immersion program, Jackson stayed on as a media intern at Chernoff Newman, helping the team with media research, vendor outreach, plan timelines and performance analytics reporting.

Jackson’s drive, enthusiasm and efforts during his internships proved valuable to our team and the greater agency, so much so Chernoff Newman had to make him a permanent member of the agency upon his graduation. Allow me to officially welcome Jackson to the Chernoff Newman team.

That same Agency Immersion Internship helped us realize how much Jackson offered to our team.

As a media coordinator, Jackson assists in the strategic placement of a variety media types to target intended audiences for client marketing campaigns. He researches and analyzes audience engagement patterns to ensure the success of paid media campaigns.

Jackson received his bachelor’s in marketing from the College of Charleston in 2022.
