Production and Operations Intern

June - August 2019 • Los Angeles, CA

What I liked

Great learning environment for all aspects of production, very welcoming to interns.

What I wish was different

I wish I took advantage of the internship program events more often in order to connect with the other interns since I was the only intern in my office.

Advice

Make your goals/interests clear to your supervisor because there are so many people in the office they can connect you with to put on a path that is best fit for you.

Ad Sales Intern

May - August 2019 • New York City, NY

What I liked

This was a really cool experience totally immersing myself in the Entertainment industry. Being that I was in Ad Sales, we looked at the quantitative side of advertising and commercial time. It was really interesting to see how content and channels are funded. We also were able to explore other parts of the industry getting an inside look at Ad Sales Marketing, Product Placement, Technology/Digital, Finance, Communications/PR, and Human Resources. There were really amazing events to meet other interns, get coffee with executives, and go to exclusive tours. I rang the Nasdaq closing bell for Discovery's Shark Week and toured the Food Network Test Kitchen; very cool, educative, and fun experience.

What I wish was different

I think what I wish were different pertains to me really realizing that Marketing is more of my cup-of-tea compared to Ad Sales. There were times when I wanted to spend more time with the Marketing and Creative departments, but that is not to say that my projects in Ad Sales weren't informative or meaningful.

Advice

Set up as many coffees as possible to pick different people's brains while you're there :)

Vet Corps Navigator

September 2019 • St. Martin's, County Clare

What I liked

The interaction with all of the students, veterans, spouses, dependents, non-vets and everybody in the community

What I wish was different

I'm still having fun. I like the personal and meaningful connections.

Advice

Make the connection to everyone and not just limiting yourself to the veteran community. It may say vet corps navigator, however it also impacts everyone in the community, campus and beyond. On the website, the options for employer and location are limited. There's no other choice to place my location of St Martin's University and Americorps. This needs to be changed and expanded.
