For one day only, the I-COM blog’s readers have been truly blessed: I-COM has left this wonderful blog post in the hands of their Agency Life interns. And so, without further ado, we introduce to you…

Joshua Elliott and Hayden Brindley

And guess what, we’re going to talk about everything… okay, maybe not everything, but we’re going to give you the lowdown on what it’s like to be an intern at I-COM, a bit of detail about our positions and why we’re in the I-COM office, and we’re even going to drop in a song of the week, as well as some other fantastic, incredible stuff. And, last but not least, we’re also going to introduce I-COM top trumps!

What is Agency Life?

You’re probably thinking, “Agency Life interns, what’s exactly is that?” Well, basically it means we are sort of like super hero interns… actually that’s not true. As part of certain undergraduate courses at Manchester Metropolitan University, students are given the option to take Agency Life as a unit, which involves students finding an internship with an agency for a day a week. Both of us ended up landing I-COM and have been working with the guys here since September. It’s a process that allows us to experience a bit of real life marketing before graduating, and it’s great for our CVs too. An opportunity that most students don’t get to experience unless they take a sandwich course!

So, What Do We Get Up To?

So far we’ve been set a range of tasks to complete, and we’ve helped out loads of different members of the team, ranging from research to actually working on a client’s live social account. It has been a ball so far – I-COM has a quirky office with a wicked atmosphere which we think gets the best out of everyone. With invitations to work dos (and first hand experience of the work don’ts), we’ve got a pretty good grasp on the I-COM lifestyle. The agency really knows what it’s doing and there is a great bunch of people working here. The future’s bright, the future’s I-COM.

Now, let’s spice it up a little bit; here’s our song of the week. Sit back, chill and enjoy Caesars - Jerk It Out, a personal favourite of ours from FIFA 04.

And last but not least for today’s blog takeover, here are our first set of I-COM Top Trumps. Introducing to you: Graham, Kim, and a limited edition Mike. Play your heart out.


Thank you and goodnight,

Josh and Hayden
