My First Internship! ♥

Friday, December 4, 2020 Pittsburgh, PA, USA

THAT IS A WRAP .... on my first internship!

I began a social media internship with a local YMCA back in August. I really didn't think too much about it. I just knew that internships look good and I needed to be doing something to help myself while looking for a new job. It also took the place of a social media class that I needed for my degree in Media/Business Communications. 

This was my first semester as a full-time student! It was … I was … It was overwhelming. & I still have so much work to do over the weekend for my finals. I am so thankful to have been able to take this time to knock out a couple of core classes that I was worried about though. 

& I really enjoyed this internship. I learned a lot about the analytical end of social media and really upped my graphic design skills. I want to work with social media in the future and this opportunity gave me the hands-on experience that I was looking for and the college credit I needed. 

It also expanded my resume and introduced me to some amazing professional references. It helps when you have a cool supervisor. 

This was really overwhelming to take on during a pandemic and with so much uncertainty around me. I definitely complained my way through a lot of it, but I am ... I think I am proud of myself?. IS THAT WHAT THIS FEELING IS? Huh. Nice. 

140 hour of work and over 100 custom posts ... 

2 new classes scheduled for Spring ...

Now I am ready for a break. ♥
