On Saturday August 9th, I stepped back onto North Carolina soil for the first time in months. My experience this summer was nothing short of amazing. The folks at IBM created an unforgettable internship experience! The skills—both professional and technical—have already proved themselves to be valuable.
Be your brand—do what you are good at!
Two weeks ago, I was interviewed for a position at a local start-up, Go2 LLC. Last week, I started working and I absolutely love the job! I spend most of my time building social profiles, developing content, and finding ways for Go2 to market our product. Going from a massive corporation to a small venture (3 employees), has been quite the experience. The start-up environment forces you to assume many roles and inevitably harbors growth. What a great place to grow as a professional!
Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school. -Albert Einstein
Class is now in session and I find myself back into a somewhat normal routine. This semester I applied to a position within the Cameron School of Business and was chosen to be the Student Director of Social Media Marketing. I have an incredible vision for the Cameron School and cannot wait to see us grow! I plan to extend the current social footprint of the CSB to networks such as: Klout, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and eventually WordPress.
It takes discipline not to let social media steal your time. -Alexis Ohanian
Sixteen credit hours and two internships have been quite stressful the last few weeks. I have been given a crash course in time-management and I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel! My mother’s advice has once again kept me going—“Short-term sacrifices make long-term goals happen!” I have realized that what I am doing actually matters and I am very excited about the upcoming semester. Check back for updates!
