Hi – our names are Olivia, Audrey + Linh, and we currently intern at Tribu, a San Antonio marketing agency! Olivia works in the content marketing department, Audrey works in the sales department, and Linh works in the website design department.
We want to share our experience and all that we have learned during these past couple of months here at Tribu Creative – Our job responsibilities are all so different from one another, so hopefully, this will allow you to see the advertising agency from every angle.
GOOD MORNING, MARKETING MONDAY!
Today is a Monday, and everyone will be working in the office – Our office is super casual + relaxed, so the team is allowed to wear anything that they feel expresses themself and their personality.
Monday morning calls for a cup of Joe, so we usually make a coffee in the office kitchen, bring one from home, or order from the Starbucks down the street!
9:00AM TRIBU TRIBE MEETING
Every Monday is our L10 meeting – Our team is divided into separate groups that we like to call tribes, and we go over the following: Good news, review last week’s finished tasks and any updates on our quarterly goals, partner updates, complete IDS (Identify, Discuss, Solve) + conclude the meeting!
10:30AM LET’S GET TO IT
By this time, all of us head back to our desks and tackle our projects/assignments! Depending on the week and what our team needs help with, our day-to-day might look different from the previous week.
Content Intern (Olivia): Write blogs + newsletters for business partners to help drive website traffic and build SEO
Sales Intern (Audrey): Monitor current running FB/linkedin ads
Web Design Intern (Linh): Review clients’ brand guides and adapt design aesthetic to the client’s brand
1:00PM LET’S GRUB AD AGENCY INTERN STYLE
Lunchtime with the Tribe members! We’ll head down to the lounge area to eat together or head to the Pearl food hall for some yummy eats. This is a time to catch up with each other and other team members on how our day is going.
AFTERNOON HOUR AT THE SAN ANTONIO MARKETING AGENCY
Halfway through the day, we’ll generally stay in the lounge area for a change of scenery. Tribu is a two-story home located in Downtown San Antonio + converted into a creative marketing agency.
With a few workspaces to choose from, this house provides you the option to be creative and cozy all in one!
Content Intern (Olivia): Build social media calendars for business partners and design copy/imagery for social media platforms

Web Design Intern (Linh): Touch base with Marian, the Visual Department Manager, and get approvals on design work + start to build the website on WordPress
5:00PM END OF DAY
Time to wrap up! We’ll usually meet up with the other interns from the Students + Startups program at a happy hour event they are hosting or go to happy hour with the other team members – Some of our favorite spots include:
- Elsewhere Garden Bar + Kitchen
- Cherrity Bar
- The Pearl
- Burleson Beer Garden
- Halcyon Coffee + Bar + Lounge
Our internship at Tribu Advertising Agency has been fun + full of unique experiences within the San Antonio marketing industry – Not only have all of us become great friends + colleagues, but we have also gained so much insight into our desired field!
