Connor McGovern Internship post#1

Thus far my Internship with “Community Bikes and Boards” has been a fulfilling and enjoyable experience to say the least. I have learned a good deal about what quality advertising can result in as well as how to create a quick “rush job” for on the spot advertising. When I say “rush job” I am referring to an instance when we had that quick, sudden, but small earthquake that occurred in Philadelphia this past year. My Boss asked me to come up with a quick idea for a sale so I created a 35% off all bikes purchased in the next day for all the “I survived the Philly Earthquake sale!”  It was fun and creative advertising jobs like this that made the job more fun. This job has helped me realize that if I do indeed pursue a job with an advertising firm I would really enjoy being a copywriter because I feel that I can come up with quick and effective catchy copy. I have learned that I am better with words then I am imagery. The person who has inspired me the most during this Internship is my boss. He has become a close friend of mine but I respect him the most because he had a dream and now does what he loves to do and that is to own his own bike/board shop. When he is not selling his equipment he is using it on the slopes and around Philadelphia. I have been to a few promotional events where I got to ride his bikes and wear his apparel to advertise to the general public and I had a great time doing it.
