Marketing Intern Day 1: The Great Unknown

Hello world, my name is Denise and this is my first day at Digital Operative! I am super excited to be here and start working. I know the next 12 weeks are going to be quite interesting, with a refrigerator full of Red Bulls and robots on the walls- true signs of a good time. I seem to be the only girl working here presently, so I hope to be welcomed into this boys club. I've had other internships before but none at a company like DO. The quality of work designed and produced here is awesome and at the end of the 12 weeks I hope to come away with some of that awesomeness. I expect to learn what it really takes to not only work in an agency setting, but how to flourish in one. The biggest expectation I have here at DO is to watch and learn the whole process of meeting with a client and seeing the end result of their plan, whatever that may be. A few other things I hope to accomplish here at DO are to:

  • improve my communication skills online and in person
  • learn the rights and wrongs of websites, social media and SEO
  • learn the proper conduct when discussing plans with clients
  • learn a little about designing and what goes into the thinking behind coming up with a creative design
  • eat a homemade tortilla at every Mexican restaurant in the area
Lastly I hope I find what it is I want to do after graduation, and possibly be on the right track toward achieving that.
