It has been about 2 and half months since I have been interning at Factory PR.
To start out, I thought I would hate the commute. Surprisingly, Megabus is quite comfortable and I catch up with my sleep so that is the least of my concerns. My usual routine is when I arrive, I do check ins, merchandise the men’s showroom and get a list of stuff to finish by the end of the day by my supervisor. I really like that I get to see new lines of clothes from our clients before anyone else can. So far, I like everything that comes with this internship. I even like the errands I have to run to the staples (Yes, I do get to use the company credit card!). As stupid as it sounds, I feel like I am doing actual work rather than doing homework stuck in Philadelphia.
At one point, I felt like I was only doing the same stuff every time I come in. I wanted to do something different and that exact day, my supervisor assigned me to do press clips. It is the first time actually doing it from start to finish so I really enjoyed doing that and trying something new. Press clips are screenshots (and using photoshop to make it look presentable) of articles talking about our client’s products. I really enjoy working in PR and I hope to continue to do so after I graduate!
