A memorable Summer Internship!
Support Analyst (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 2, 2015
A typical day during my Summer Internship at Refinery29 included answering emails, deploying laptops and desktops for new hires, and providing both remote and on-site support. During this time, I learned all about Macintosh OSX operation & repair as the office used Apple for 80% of their employees. In terms of Management and Work Environment, this was the type of workplace where our Director would show up at our desks every Friday at 5pm with a shot glass filled with Irish Jameson Whiskey for us! The Office was equipped with access to the swimming pool on the roof overseeing Downtown Manhattan, 4 Meeting Rooms, an Entertainment Room, and fully staffed Kitchen area for just about anything. This was a young, successful start-up in the online Womens lifestyle blogging industry. My Co-Workers were incredibly friendly and outgoing. They were all my age; young working professionals in New York City! I distinctly remember being there for the day-long party they threw for their employees when we had 1,000,000 unique hits in 24 hours! The hardest part of the job was definitely dealing with Executives, since there is so much urgency and pressure to correct the issue they are having. The most enjoyable part of the position was just coming into work every morning. That was really one of the happiest, best positions I've ever held in my professional career.
Great Work Environment
