I started week 2 of my internship today, and it has been nonstop! Whenever a client has an event, not only do we write the news release to be sent out to all of our different media contacts, but we also create a calendar release to be sent out to many different community and social sites to be put on their events calendar. I kind of wish that these sites operated like the Common App – put all the info in once and then click send. But sadly it does not! Twenty-two times I had to input all the information for an event into different sites. Although the work was tedious, it taught me how much really goes into providing service for a client. Not only do you have to make sure they are presented in the best light, but also that their events are being put out there and that the public knows about them.
So far, everything is great! Check out downtownboca.org to check out some of the things I’ve been working.
