My Internship at Local Vox Media

I am a marketing Intern at Localvox media; I am thoroughly enjoying my experience here, although it is a short internship for approximately 6 weeks. In the short time I have been here I have learned quite a lot. I have had to learn to use a variety of different programs such as Photoshop, Gimp (which is very similar to Photoshop) it is a free photo editing software but it is not as advanced or have the same amount  of options as Photoshop does. Although I am here as a Marketing interning, I am doing some graphic design while the graphic design intern hasn’t started here. So this is a great experience as prior to starting here I had not used any photo editing what so ever. As the internship goes on I will be carrying out marketing research to expand and define our target companies. Over the next couple of weeks I will be migrating clients to a new platform and content from one platform to another and ensuring that the content redirects properly from our legacy site to the new site, helping work out our processes for migration by testing our documentation to make sure the steps for migration are clear, intuitive and efficient.. I was unaware of what to expect from this internship/Local Vox Media, as I had only interned at strictly advertising firms prior to this internship. This internship has widened my horizon as to how marketing can be linked with advertising. Although this internship is unpaid I don’t feel cheated as the amount I am learning in the 6 weeks I am here is exceeding the amount I stand to learn here. Working in this company has also forced me to become more able to detect slight errors in text or while migrating clients. As the slightest minute error could cost this company a client and that could cost the company a lot. I am hoping to get the opportunity to work with the SEO department a little more. I will truly appreciate this internship for many different reasons and one of those reason is that before this internship I had the idea that because I am studying advertising and that I was going to work in advertising, but now I am highly interested in the routes of marketing and SEO (search Engine Optimization)
