What are some of your daily job duties?
My duties consisted of creating blog posts about the company’s latest plug-ins or what was the latest news within the company, tweeting to make people more aware about Linchpin, posting on Instagram, LinkedIn, and Facebook. The internship was very PR focused so I was greatly involved with handling their social media.
What do you like most about your position?
I enjoyed the most exploring what I was good at within the company. I really enjoyed creating Instagram posts from scratch and coming up with captivating posts for anyone viewing their content. I also really enjoyed blogging and writing about what they were most passionate about.
Did anything surprise you about the interviewing process or how you located your position?
I was not too surprised since I felt well prepared for the interview and what to expect.
What has been most valuable about doing an internship?
I was able to build an experience that I wouldn’t have by just sticking with classes. Being hands-on with my possible future career was an eye-opening experience and helped me better understand what I enjoyed doing within my major. I also am grateful to take away a portfolio of everything I was able to accomplish at my internship.
Any tips I have for students seeking employment:
Always keep searching, meeting with advisors, professors, anyone that can help. The Center for Career & Professional Development gave me many connections in which I was able to utilize and further extend my search, landing me my internship. Patience is key in the internship process.
