Today is our intern’s last day at True- and we can’t thank Bailey enough for all of her hard work the past several months. Here’s her reflection on her time at True!
Over the past 4 months, I have had the privilege to work with amazing people, clients and one very cute pug named Murphy. As the content intern for True Digital Communications, I learned more than I could have ever imagined. Believe it or not, as a True intern you are not sent on coffee runs or made to sort papers – although one day I did upload 1000 USB’s with marketing collateral for a client! At True, interns have the freedom to create content for clients, learn about digital marketing and become familiar with analytics. I was able to sit in on client meetings and connect with partners from all over the world. At True I didn’t feel like the intern, nor was I treated like one. During my three days a week at True, although I wish it were more, I was not just an intern, I was part of the team.
During my time at True, I learned not only about my profession but also a lot about myself. As a senior at Kent State, it was a very busy semester for me. Tackling 19 credit hours, my senior capstone, a job where I had to travel on the weekends and my internship, I was nervous that it would get overwhelming. I learned that having an internship you love made a busy schedule less stressful. I realized I love the agency setting. The upbeat ever-changing workload made me, a not so morning person, excited to wake up and go into the office. I learned that it is okay to mess up. This was my first real internship so there were times that I made mistakes. These mistakes gave me the opportunity to pick back up and try again.
I worked with a knowledgeable team who gave me advice and feedback on my work and offered me valuable tips about my future. I feel as if I have met lifelong mentors during my time at True. I have acquired connections that I will hold onto forever and each member at True has taught me something different. Whether it was a recommendation on an insight post, how to sort through data on an excel document or even where the closest Chipotle was – everything I learned in my four months was positive advice that will help me in my future.
Although my time here flew by, I learned a lot along the way and am thankful I was able to be a part of the True Digital family. I want to thank everyone for making me feel important and preparing me for my future ahead. Oh, and don’t worry, I’ll be back to visit. I’ll miss Murphy too much not to.
We’ll miss you, Bailey! Best of luck in all of your future endeavors!
