Ailsa Hits Manhattan
May 19, 2016
This summer, our intern Ailsa has been given the amazing opportunity to work with Calvin Klein in New York as their Global Sourcing Intern. This once in a lifetime chance has all been made possible by The Saltire Foundation – it is their aim to inspire Scotland’s future leaders and make Scotland the most entrepreneurial society in the world.
Ailsa has been interning with Cole AD since October, and has expressed her thanks to the agency for helping her secure a place at CK.
“I am so grateful to the team at Cole AD for providing the valuable experience and mentoring that allowed me to gain this amazing opportunity. During my time here I have developed professional skills which gave me the confidence and know-how to bag the role!”
On the 4th of June, Ailsa will jet off on her 13-week adventure. Her role will include: leading project management teams, attending meetings with company executives and pitch fresh ideas to members of the board. With a passion for the fashion industry, this really is a dream role for Ailsa! She will be taught about the fashion industry and specifically Calvin Klein’s product development and branding processes.
Michael Cole, Client Director: “I believe 250 people applied for the Calvin Klein post and we at Cole AD all believed Ailsa would succeed. She has a brilliant attitude, always keen to learn and the team really enjoy working with her. Summer 2016 will open a lot of doors for Ailsa – a glittering career awaits!”
