My name is Charlotte Spangler and I worked as an intern with Advocate Agency during the summer of 2013. Working at Advocate Agency provided an invaluable internship experience that I know will help me in my career for years to come. In fact, as I apply to new internships, they seem to pale in comparison to the work I was able to do at Advocate Agency.

The internship was incredibly hands-on, and Nicky and Kelle kept me busy right from the start. By the end of the summer, I felt like a fully-fledged talent agent - I was submitting actors for jobs, attending showcases to look for new talent, and speaking with both casting directors and clients. I learned more than I could have ever imagined about talent management, as well as the entertainment industry as a whole. As an aspiring actress, it was such a privilege to learn the proper etiquette and behaviours to have with an agent, as well as what they are looking for “on the other side.”

Not only did I work on the daily tasks of a talent agent, I also worked on a special personalized project. Kelle knew I had experience and interest in marketing, and instructed me to create a campaign find more older actors to add to Advocate Agency’s books. This involved everything from speaking with theatre groups, interviewing potential clients, and speaking on a local radio show. I learned a whole host of skills I never had before, and it greatly increased my confidence in advertising and sales.

Though I was nervous when I first came to Advocate Agency, Kelle and Nicky were incredibly trusting and encouraging from the beginning. I knew that they were there to support me throughout the entire experience. Even when I made a mistake, they helped me to move forward and approach the next step. I didn't feel like “the intern,” but rather just part of the team. For anyone looking to learn more about not only talent management, but also a behind the scenes look at producing film, television, stage productions, and commercials, I would fully recommend working for Advocate Agency.
