1210am Home of the Phillies Radio!
This is my third week at 1210am talk radio as a sales intern and it has been a very exciting adventure. It started off slow because I didn’t have a computer so I spent most days just filing but after I was gifted with a computer I was put to work. I do research for potential clients such as Philadelphia Community College, Yuengling Brewery, and many car dealerships. Also I get to go out on sales calls with fellow sales associates in my office, so I get a first hand experience with dealing directly with clients. Out on these sales calls I am learning that you only have one shot to sell an idea to a potential client and you better be organized or they will not waste their time on you. I am excited to spend the rest of the summer at 1210am and hopefully gain more from this wonderful experience.
Sounds like a fun place to work Austin. I had a similar situation at my internship, I couldn’t log on to my computer for the first week. Do you think this internship is making you more interested in the sales side, or is it helping you realize you should look to another area of advertising? Also, have you had the opportunity to be on air at all?
It is exciting to hear that you are dealing directly with clients for your internship. That sounds like great experience! I’m sure it only gets easier with time. Good luck with the rest of your time there!
