What I wish was different
My internship with Wedding Salon was probably not the best internship because of many reasons. Remote working environment was not ideal to me because it prevented me from being a part of the company's community. Without a sense of belonging, Wedding Salon's core values, principles, system, and so on, were all vague to me, which sometimes makes work meaningless and bland. As an Event Production Intern, I expected more in-person, hands-on experience in which I would get to plan, produce, and manage real events. However, since the company is fully remote, event production experience was limited to mainly data gathering and sorting, which was not an area of interest for me. Furthermore, being a small and centralized organization, communication among managers and employees was abrupt and inefficient, leading to frustration while working.
