AEI SPEAKERS BUREAU, Boston, MA
Social Media Intern
September 2013 – December 2013
For my first internship, I was pleased to join the small but mighty team at AEI Speakers Bureau. As one of two Social Media Interns, I worked closely with the agency’s wonderful Marketing Director / Relationships Manager on the upkeep of the company’s website. In addition to this, I was responsible for drafting and publishing weekly topical blog posts aimed at promoting the company and its associated professional speakers. I also researched, composed and scheduled relevant content to post to the company’s Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter accounts and occasionally edited and uploaded video content to AEI’s YouTube channel.
SCHNEIDER ASSOCIATES, Boston, MA
Public Relations Intern
January 2014 – April 2014
After a summer of binge-watching Mad Men, I was fortunate enough to get some experience in an actual advertising / public relations firm at Schneider Associates. As an intern, I worked closely with an awesome Senior Account Executive, while also taking on assignments from her colleagues. In this position, I drafted blog posts and developed ideas for blog posts that would later get pitched to SA’s clients. I also spent a great deal of time researching and compiling information about relevant media professionals for client outreach and then cold-calling and cold-emailing these media professionals with pitches related to SA’s clients’ areas of expertise. During my time there, SA had a robust team of interns, so I often collaborated with them to complete projects, such as compile month-long social media calendars for clients, while also covering various administrative assistant duties.
YOUGOFAR PRODUCTIONS, London, UK
Content Development Intern (Remote)
January 2015 – April 2015
Shortly after graduating from Emerson in December 2014, I began the most unconventional of my internships. As a Development Intern, I was tasked with reading and writing coverage for feature-length scripts and teleplays for original pilots. Over the course of several months, I was able to read dozens of projects across genres, ranging in quality from “I’d actually like to see this movie” to “downright awful.” Given the remote and rather loose structure of the position, I did not actually receive any guidance or feedback from my “supervisor,” however, I am still appreciative to have had the opportunity to think critically and offer my opinion on scripts in consideration.
