“It’s gone by that quickly?” my internship coordinator said with surprise. Ten weeks’ time is never long if I am challenged, especially with learning new skills or further developing ones I have already used. My internship at World Music/CRASHarts has provided me with an experience in both.
With many integrated marketing strategies incorporating social media and online campaigns, I am fortunate to be participating in executing strategy though my internship. Concepts like a relevant content stream, event listing, search engine optimization, and personal voice have all been ones I have applied at my internship. I have practiced them before through my work-study experience at The Red Room, in addition to my promotion of my band; but despite previous experience, further exploration has refined my understanding. Even the accomplishment of tasks I have already performed before is—to me—a lesson in perceived importance and popular usage.
