With my internship I was thrust into a world of deadlines coming to end that needed attention and organizing future projects that people may need for reference in the future. It made me work on how I would normally organize a file or project and find ways that anybody who had to go into work that I had worked on wouldn’t get lost. It was important to know how to make all files readable for some new eyes who might be receiving very little information.
This internship fit into my college education so much more than I thought it would. Most importantly I had to learn to adapt to new programs. I didn’t know a lot of other programs in the area that wasn’t my emphasis but this internship made me learn that I would have to be able to adapt to new things. I think it was a big point to be able to learn new programs and still be able to work with the ones I was use to it.
This made me grow personally after having to learn a few new programs right off the bat. I never thought I would have to use these ones but after getting dumped into a fast paced world I learned that to be ignorant of other programs and thinking there is someone you’ll being working with will have all the answers is a silly way to go through life.
I believe this job gave me the experience of tight deadlines. If I hadn’t had a job where deadlines were such a big deal I may have never realized that in a real job scenario deadlines can make or break you in the real world. I later met with other job employers and I learned that deadlines are what really keeps clients interested in a business, so when a company doesn’t make their given deadlines it can break a company’s reputation.
This internship showed me that when one gives their word on a subject or a promise it is law. People need to be held responsible for their promises and when it comes to this area we do it. If someone says here is the deadline I need some product by then that is the time it it due.
The com and marketing place I worked at for viterbo dealt with all the ads for the school and promotions. We served all people who had up coming plays and any and all events. The climate really made the internship great! Fun people to work with and they all had knowledge of the area so I always had someone to help me when I didn’t know what to do!
