I am at my internship three times a week, so I am devoting a lot of my time to C.Fox. My parents and friends are always curious about what I am working on throughout my hours interning, and luckily, I always have a lot of things to update them on. I am always busy at work, for I am given a lot of responsibilities and time consuming projects, which is awesome. I never just sit around counting the hours down throughout the day. Instead, I am responsible for a variety of our clients, and I am given assignments that really contribute to our clients, making my intern role meaningful.
I have been involved with various clients throughout the semester. In a previous post, I mentioned CHF International, which is one of our nonprofit clients that does developmental work all over the world. I have done a lot of research for them to create social media campaign ideas that are meant to engage more people and bring attention to all of the great work their organization does for the world. Also, I have built media lists and written press releases. I also write pitch letters. Basically, I do a lot of different tasks for this client. I have loved working with them because they do great work for so many people around the world, and they deserve the media attention. I also conduct media sweeps for this client, and it’s a great way for me to stay in touch with the news going on around the world since they are based in so many different countries. I am more aware of world news because I have to be for this client, which is great. It’s important to be in touch with current news.
Another client I have worked closely with this semester is Travalo, a fragrance atomizer that allows consumers to take their perfumes or colognes on the go for traveling or daily errands. It’s a great product that I fully back since it really adds convenience to life. It’s been fun working with a product because this is unfamiliar territory for me. I have done a lot of pitching for this client in order to get it in different media outlets. A great feeling during my internship was when I earned a handful of successful pitches for this client. Different outlets agreed to review it, and their reviews are beginning to post. It’s thrilling to see your work pay off. To learn more about Travalo, you can go to the website: us.travalo.com
C.Fox offers a lot of variety with their clients, which I really enjoy. I get to be involved in such different projects, which keeps things exciting and prevents the workday from getting dull. Thankfully, when I am asked, “What do you do at work all day?” I always have a list of projects and work to discuss. Unfortunately, there are internships that only involve coffee and copying: getting coffee for your boss and making copies. C.Fox is not the type of company that would run such an operation. Interns are important to them, and they enjoy teaching. Fortunately, I am learning a lot.
