It’s hard to believe that I’m already a quarter of the way through my internship already! Time has really flown, mainly because I’ve just been to busy to even notice the passing weeks. Before I realize it, I know that I will be on my way down the aisle to get my diploma in May.
The moving process into our new location is still ongoing, as our warehouse and merchandise fulfillment team is still in the process of moving full time over here. I believe the whole team will be here by mid march. Still meeting new members of the Paid team on a daily basis which is cool, and the positive feedback I’ve been getting has been keeping me motivated and hard working.
I’ve been working on some really cool things over the past few week. First, our client managers and our new business head hunters have recently courted rock superstars Motley Crue as a future client. Since all of this came about in such a short period of time, I was elected to book all travel arrangement for 3 people to fly into Las Vegas to meet the band during their residency at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. Having only booked travel arrangements for myself, It was a totally different experience, if tedious, and one that will help me in the future. I had to book 3 sets of flights, with each traveler flying from a different city, all set to arrive at the same time and place. If all goes as planned, Motley Crue could be one of our most important clients, as they could lead the way for other higher profile acts to work with us for VIP events. I can’t really say any more in the interest of protecting Paid’s interests. I will surely share more though as our scope of work becomes more apparent.
