Being an intern entails more than just answering phones and coffee runs after all! Many students go into their internships nervous that they will be doing mediocre tasks all day, what some disappointingly refer to as “free work.” So I wanted to choose wisely where I decided to intern…
I heard only amazing things about Beson4 from my friend who was the previous summer intern. He referred me for the role, and after my first step in the office, I was impressed! The office has a fun and hip style conducive to creativity. Mike, the Senior Project Manager, interviewed me and showed excitement and passion for the company. I accepted the social media intern position without second thought!
My responsibilities include social media management and developing blog posts. I also assist the employees with research when needed. Lucky for me, the Beson4 team welcomes me into their team meetings and many of the projects they are working on! It’s fascinating to be a part of brainstorming meetings in an Advertising Agency. I remember comparing my first meeting to meetings from the Netflix hit series ‘Mad Men,’ which was previously my only idea of what an Ad Agency was like from the inside.
Much like Mad Men, the Beson4 team updates each other on what they are currently working on and everyone shares their ideas and opinions. AJ, the company’s CEO, leads the discussion and often jokes around with the crew. They all show a unique passion for their work and it’s exciting to see such dedicated individuals bring fresh and new ideas to the table.
It’s not only the work I’m doing here that’s giving me real world experience, but more importantly, that I’m immersed in an environment where creativity is key, innovation is necessary, and all ideas are welcome! I thank Beson4 for letting me be a part of that.
