Three Tips I Wish I Could Have Given Myself at the Start of my Internship

If I Knew Then, What I Know Now I mentioned in a previous blog that when I first found out about the internship with Ethic Advertising Agency, I knew nothing about Google Grants. Which was what the internship mainly revolved around. I’m very thankful that I was still awarded the opportunity to learn under ESA and study everything I could about Google Grant.
