My Experience as a Social Media Intern

Hi all, my name is Anastasia Garraway, and I am a senior advertising student with a track in account management.

Hi all, my name is Anastasia Garraway, and I am a senior advertising student with a track in account management. This summer, I interned at RVSA Advertising as a social media intern. During the internship, I was responsible for creating social media posts and some social media advertisements for four clients. Throughout the course of the internship, I mainly created posts for Facebook and Instagram.

I was very excited to begin this internship due to the fact that it was social media based. This experience has also inspired me to search for careers in social media marketing upon the completion of my degree. There were many positive aspects of the business that I discovered while interning for RVSA. Some of those would be that I was able to complete a lot of work remotely from home as opposed to just the office. Another thing would be that the diversity of the clients allows you to gain the ability to adapt to and create relevant content for each clients’ target audience.

My experience at my internship was very pleasant and eye-opening. I have come to learn many new things pertaining to social media marketing during the course of my time at RVSA. I would also say that my experience was mainly everything that I thought it would be, while also imparting new information and experiences on me that I would not have expected. A few things that I may have done differently is that I would have inquired more about the company as a whole, as I only learned about the social media department. Overall, this experience has been beneficial and rewarding as I am ready to use my degree and begin my career in advertising!

  1. This sounds like it was a really informative internship! I would love to know more about the process of creating the posts. Who did you go to to get your content for posting? Did you have to create posting calendars? Was it sort of a more loose or casual social media experience or were there rules and regulations you had to follow? I am super interested in a job in social media as well and would love to hear more about this!

  2. Hey Anastasia. Your internship sounds like such a great experience! I would love to see some of your work that you did this summer! The social media area of advertising has been blowing up and it’s awesome that you got to get some experience in that realm. Social media is something I use everyday, professionally and personally. Good luck with the rest of your college career! I’m a senior too so I’m in the same boat as you.

  3. Hello, Anastasia. Your internship sounds very fun! I am quite interested in being a social media intern. What was the hiring process like? How long was the interview? What was the day to day workflow like? I would love to hear back!
