Break Out of Your Shell
Working in an agency environment provides a lot of perks. There are social outings, wellness seminars, and social interactions with different agencies and professionals. All of these events provide great networking and learning opportunities you normally don’t get in the office. When you’re in the office you get to learn the basics of the job but there really isn’t time to pick the brains of your superiors for advice.
Advice: Take Full Advantage of an Internship
I cannot believe that the semester is almost over, and with it my time at Future Media Concepts. Looking back at my first day in January, the amount that I have learned is amazing. My experience here has gone above and beyond what was expected and I can truly say that I have had an extremely positive experience working as a Marketing intern at this company.
Inside View on NSAC
Temple University’s NSAC team did an amazing job finishing up their competition last week placing fourth out of fourteen teams who presented in front of the NY judges! That’s a great accomplishment for all students involved in the process.

Lasting Impressions at At Media
My time interning at At Media flew by. I feel like I am more prepared to enter my senior year at Temple because this experience has reinforced how important this final semester is. I was intrigued by the inner workings of such a small company and how they are able to rely on a network of freelancers to complete their understated workload. The team at At Media, mainly Antoinette Johnson and Tyler Westnedge, introduced me to several organizations, namely Old City Creative Corridor and recently, Skillshare. They have shown me how to reach out to people either through cold calling, networking, or through social media and I have watched first hand how this has benefited them and given them opportunities that otherwise would have been missed.

Networking is your power tool.
I’ve always been told that the last semester of senior year is the most difficult. It’s the period in your life when you have the least time to yourself. Yet regardless how many times I have been told this I continued to think, “how hard could it really be?” Well, now I know. Since early January I’ve been managing my last few senior level classes, an internship at Philadelphia Magazine, work, my sorority, and trying to enjoy every last bit of college that I possibly can. I now truly know the meaning of “there aren’t enough hours in the day.”
