As every college student and recent graduate knows, interning is how you get your foot in the door and learn how it’s like to work in the real world. Essentially things they sometimes forget to mention in school. With that being said, our very own Social Media Intern Beck Delude shares her experiences at Flightpath below.
I have been so lucky to be the Social Media Intern at Flightpath in NYC and learn from their brilliant employees. My time spent at the agency has allotted me a vast array of opportunities. Since being here I participated in building social media strategies for several brands, attended BlogHer12, researched relevant news about digital media and went to IFBCon!
Here are some key things I’ve learned here at Flightpath:
- Think critically about who the brand’s audience is
- Double and triple check everything you do and then have someone else look over it
- It’s important to be aware of what others in the industry are doing but to always be original
- Research is a very important aspect of being prepared
Aside from all the amazing opportunities and all the great things I learned the best part of interning at Flightpath was the people I worked with. Everyone is extremely talented and willing to take the time to teach you what they know.
