    Introduction: Jordan Van Clief 

    Hi! I’m Jordan Van Clief. I’m a senior double majoring at American University and I’m currently the Marketing Intern at Riot Act Comedy Theater.

    I found this internship on AU’s career web over the summer. Riot Act was being built this summer and opened up this August 11th. To me, the idea of starting an internship with a brand new company was exciting. I would get to see what it takes to launch a successful business in a recession.

    This major also was a great combination of my majors. It was primarily a Public Communication internship, but the theater element was a big reason I applied, and probably a big reason for why I was hired.

    As a new company, there are always a million things to do and not enough hours in the day to do it. As an intern my job ranges from stuffing envelopes to events to writing our monthly press release, but more on that later.

    As for my future in PR, I have no idea. Perhaps as a senior I shouldn’t be admitting that, but I have six or so months to decide. I love my internship with Riot Act and the things I’m learning here will definitely be a marketable skill for the future.

    Stay tuned to find out more, this is only the introduction.

      We don’t like internships where people are just stuffing envelopes! Has that gotten better yet?

    Thinking Ahead (too much) 

    Organization can be great sometimes. When you’re ahead on your work, tasks at your internship, or whatever it is you’re working on- it’s always a good feeling. Or when you know you’ve laid out specific times to get things done- you can feel more at ease with your workload. Between working at my internship, my job at the career center, a full load of classes (that are not very easy), and being on the executive board for my sorority- I’ve had to become a pro with time management. For the past two semesters, I’ve been constantly calculating my next move. But who am I kidding, even before Junior year I was a planner. It’s just my nature.

      I know a lot of people in the same situation for you. It is extremely frustrating! Hopefully, this makes you feel better so you know you are not alone in these sentiments.

      I know the feeling, I applied for about 6 different internships and I’ve only heard back from one so far (with a rejection) and it is so frustrating. I really like your attitude of trying to embrace the unexpected, that’s what I will try to do too.

    Spring Is In The Air 

    As the second half of this semester marches forward I’m caught between wanting it to be over and to never end. During Spring break I was able to rest from both school and my internship though both were on my mind as I worked and attended a wedding. Never has what I’m doing in class and my internship duties been so closely related.
