Last summer , I was offered the opportunity to work as a social media intern at Markentum. Since I was looking to gain experience in marketing, being particularly interested in social media, this position seemed to be a perfect fit.
Internships have a bad rep. Interns are thought of as the coffee-getters, the paper-staplers, and the corporate slaves to their superior. As a college senior and young professional, I was intimidated by these labels simply because I wanted to have a purpose wherever I decided to work.
My very first day as an intern at Markentum is a day I will never forget. As a recent high-school graduate, about to start my first year in college, I was anxious about what was to come as I embarked on this new endeavor. What I didn’t know was how much I was going to learn and grow as a young adult.
