This semester, I have been working as a Marketing Intern for the company Future Media Concepts. For the past few weeks, I have been learning so much about the marketing industry and gaining plenty of useful experience. Although I am in my junior year as an advertising major, marketing has always been something I have been interested in since it is so closely related to advertising. My manager is great and lets me do a variety of projects. I work on e-mail campaigns (which has lead me to learn the ins and outs of the program SalesForce), help manage and create content for their social media sites, write blog posts on WordPress, and will also be a part of preparing an event that will be happening in May.
Working with social media has definitely been my favorite part of the internship so far. Being in charge of creating posts, finding interesting articles to share, keeping track of analytics, and working on WordPress to contribute to their blog has given me so much experience. I always assumed social media would be something easy and mostly common sense, but after working with it I realized there’s a lot more that goes into it than what you probably think. However, I have enjoyed it so much that it has made me think about pursuing social media as a job once I graduate. If anyone is interested, here’s a link to their Facebook, Twitter, and Blog.
Going into this internship, I wasn’t sure what to expect. It has been an even more amazing experience than I thought it would be. I love working for this company and I am so grateful for all the things I have gotten to learn thus far. My experience here has definitely given me a glimpse into what I want my future to be!
