I am the type of person who likes to dive headfirst into impulsive projects. In my apartment, there are probably four unfinished projects at any given time. I start things and end them when I have time. Sometimes I can crank projects out in a day, and other times my creativity wanes with the passing months.
One of my co-workers, Victoria, was born in China, and never lets Leslie, Darren, Jon or I forget about it. Victoria has this tenancy to "asianize" us at any opportunity. Her methods are two-fold; she likes to share her culture, as well as ask us "American" trivia. Her cultural stories are of interest to me, since I lived in China last summer for an internship, but the marketing department is more affected by her questions about ordinary American customs. However, this trivia is the most trivial trivia that could be asked.
We had a very special person visit School Datebooks this morning! Mr. Trevor Powers was the Important Intern that went to work with his dad, Tim Powers. I got the opportunity to interview Trevor on his passions, his dreams, and his favorite summer past times.
It's been two months since I started my internship here, and I have used both Adobe Photoshop and InDesign more than I would have ever thought. Between photoshopping binding on the edges of a cover and placing new content in a brochure on InDesign, I could keep Adobe in business.
The other day I ordered my text books for the fall. I have a love-hate relationship with buying my books early: I like flipping through them before school starts and getting the chore out of the way is nice, but sometimes the book lists change and I end up paying for something I don't need. That was the case for the book, Hey Whipple, Squeeze This! by Luke Sullivan, but being the poor college student that I am, I decided to at least read it before I try to sell it on Ebay. It's turning out to be a great idea.
A few months ago, Jon asked me to make a delivery to the United Way in Lafayette while on the clock. I should have said no, since I was a lost little lamb in this town and I don't have a GPS on my phone.
Hello internet! My name is Leah and I am one of three new interns for the summer here in the marketing department of School Datebooks. I just finished my sophomore year at Purdue and am an Organizational Leadership and Supervision major with a focus in Sales and Marketing.
Greetings people of the internet! Leah here, back to talk to you about my second and third week of interning. It has been busy here at School Datebooks with everyone getting ready for fall and the upcoming school year.
“You came back!” Words from multiple coworkers on the second day of my internship here at School Datebooks. At first I thought it was just Jon being his goofy self, but when other people said it as well I started questioning if interns usually do leave. Maybe they know something I don’t….
Yes, those words came from the mouth of the man I’m supposed to impress with my unparalleled Liking/Following skills on social media. It’s probably not the first thing an intern would want to hear from her supervisor, but with Jon, comments like that mean you’re probably on good terms.
