I heard about Whizbang Ideas at my marketing clubs weekly meeting. Amanda the Business Development Coordinator came into the classroom to share all the exciting news that Whizbang Ideas was involved with. Right after her presentation I walked right up to Amanda and started a friendly conversation.
During that time I learned that Whizbang Ideas was looking for a marketing intern for the upcoming quarter, so what did I do? I made sure I got her contact info and emailed in my resume. I’m sure that you can figure out, that I got the internship!
This internship has not been like any other internship I have had before. Being amongst smart, creative, outgoing, and mot importantly friendly people has opened my eyes to a new side of the “business world”.
Just being in the office for 15 hours a week, for three months, I learned so many new things that I could have never learned inside a classroom. Things such as, going far above the client’s expectations is a must in this office; I also learned that polishing the finishing touches on all projects is a must, just like the frosting on the cake!
With the knowledge and experience I gained interning here at Whizbang Ideas, I know that I am much better off going into the real world after graduation and I know now that it’s not so scary after all.
