Small Business, Big World

Did you know Temple has a Small Business Development Center?  Because I didn’t.


But now I do, and I am a part of the process for small businesses to hit the ground running.  As a Marketing and Consulting intern, I have worked on various projects for clients in the Incubator Program – which is where start-up businesses are able to pay very little for a lot of resources.  They provide cubicles, a conference room, two larger work spaces for collaboration, internet access, copy and fax machines, training/consulting services, and access to interns – AKA me!

Internship + Food = Awesome!


Nothing is better than to be an intern in a company, which involves with the word, FOOD!! Agree or Disagree?

This summer, I am working as an Art Direction intern in AG catering, located in Fishtown. AG catering is a “2C” company, which means–it’s cool and classy. Their services include, catering to team building to hosting events. It has been months since I got the intern position. I can still remember how nervous I was on my first day. I greeted some of my colleagues, and we talked about our lives and the company. It was pretty chill. My nervousness quickly decreased from 99% to 10% by the end of the day. In the internship experience, I’ve been working on the design of AG’s website, their media kit, and the social media strategy plan. It was challenging, but it was fun after all. I get to use what I have learned in school, and apply what I’ve learned to the internship experience. I feel successful and motivated. I finally get use my skills on something useful! How great is that?!
