The first day I began my internship at Intrepid Marketing Group, I was immediately put to task. No, not to go run errands or get coffee for the office, but to write a press release. Interning at Intrepid was a learning experience and was one I will never forget. What I gained most was real-world experience that I’ll be able to apply to in a future career. But, as with any new job, there were some hurdles that you might encounter and you’ll have to learn quickly on the job. But have no fear, I am here to help you as you embark on your internship at Intrepid. So young grasshoppers, continue reading below for advice I wish I knew coming in to intern at Intrepid Marketing Group.
Ask Questions: This is the number one rule to life but especially for life at Intrepid. Never be afraid to ask a question, or several hundred. Whenever I was confused about an assignment or didn’t know what direction to take, the Intrepid team was always willing to lend a helping hand.
Take your Work Seriously: Although you are an intern, you are actually contributing to the team. Even if you’re just working on a media list or press release, your work will actually help the company out. So double or even triple-check your work and take pride in it.
Show Drive: If you want to work on a specific project, let whoever your supervisor is know. I personally wanted to work more with Google AdWords and that’s what happened. The team at Intrepid want you to enjoy your experience and work on projects you’ll enjoy.
Answer the phone, correctly: This one is mainly a joke but really answer the phone correctly.
Enjoy Yourself: Last but not least, enjoy yourself and the experience you’re gaining. The entire team at Intrepid is amazing so just know you’re in good hands.
As I embark on my journey towards full-time employment, I will look back on my internship at Intrepid Marketing Group with fondness and, I’m truly grateful for the experience I gained.
