You know you are in the right industry when you walk into work and it does not feel like a job. In my full-service marketing agency, no two days are the same. Each day brings new and stimulating tasks that are unlike the day before.
When I walked through the doors of my agency, I was hurled into a whirlwind of events, and I’ve loved every minute of it. We have the privilege of working with clients like Cirque du Soleil and Bridgeport Brewing Company.
I hit the ground running when I began working with Cirque du Soleil. Among many projects, I had the honor of attending various events. Two weeks ago, I attended Cirque’s, Big Top Raising event. This event permits the media to document the famous Grand Chapiteau big top, being raised into the sky, allowing months of performances to begin.
There has never been a dull moment when working with Bridgeport Brewing Company. Each year, the brewery announces a new brew of its Stumptown Tart. In order to celebrate, they hold an annual release party. This year I ran the event without the supervision of my immediate directors. It was scary, intimidating and thrilling. Luckily, the event went on without a hitch.
Of course I have the task of working on what many of us learned in school – social media. I monitor, analyze and distribute social media efforts for various clients like Bridgeport Brewing Company, Mountain House and my agency. Working with social media can be a breath of fresh air, since it is what I have been so comfortable with throughout the last four years.
I could not have asked for a better internship, and I am excited to see where it will take me.
