Being the only intern at the moment and also being short staffed in general, my boss tends to share a lot of his ideas with me, for all aspects of the store - whether he is stressed about sales, trying to come up with a new social media campaign or just trying to organize the display in the windows. It makes me feel like more than just an intern working on a specific project.
I enjoy being a part of not just marketing and events, but just anything going on in the store. Anything that comes to mind I suggest, even if I don't think my boss would love the idea. Sharing ideas helps come up with totally different ones. I will say whatever comes to mind for a new social media campaign. I have to admit there are times when the idea sounded better in my head, then I said it and it made no sense. But I realized that that's OK, because we then took those crazy ideas and turned them into very successful campaigns.
