Intern Time with Chrissie

We asked Chrissie, our marketing intern, to share some thoughts about the work she’s been doing here over the past few months.  Here’s what she had to say.  We promise, no bribes were exchanged in the creation of this post.

Well it’s been about two and a half months since I began interning here at Radiate Digital, and I’ve learned way more than expected.

I have been doing design and writing, which includes making wireframes, editing pictures, blogging, etc.

I have never worked for a web marketing or web design company before.  My previous internships were much different. They focused more toward social media and promotions, which taught me that I did not enjoy those job areas very much.

As a Media Communications major at North Central University, I am being prepared to work in many different fields in media (graduating in May!). This major is very broad, which can be a good thing and bad thing. It can make it difficult to decide what areas I want to work in, but the opportunities are somewhat endless!

A Little Bit of Everything

At Radiate Digital, I like how I am assigned to do multiple projects that are significantly different because it helps me see what I enjoy the most. Since the past couple of months here, I have enjoyed making wireframes (for upcoming web designs) the most. It’s exciting to see how the wireframe is turned into the final design for our client’s websites.

When it comes to writing, I wouldn’t consider it as my strong suit. I remember my first day here, Tim assigned me to write a blog post, and I had no idea where to even begin. But since then, blogging for our clients has helped me gain experience and become more familiar with it. It’s also not as difficult as I thought it would be, and I always learn something new when researching each topic.

The Radiate Culture

I also can’t forget that I love the environment at Radiate Digital. There’s never a dull moment, whether it’s trying to force country music on Tim (and failing) or experiencing Jaron’s hilarious mental breakdowns. But, I can honestly say that I have learned more at Radiate Digital than I have at my previous internships or maybe it’s just because I enjoy the work more… and of course the people!

If you or someone you know is looking for an internship, we’d love to hear about your skills!  We are always looking for new interns at Radiate Digital.   Just hop on over to our contact page and send us an email!
