It really is hard to believe our six week summer intern program for 2014 has come and gone. Yesterday we said goodbye to our summer intern, Mercedes Salazar.
SyncLab Media Internship
Each year we accept interns from Ursuline Academy of Dallas. We now have graduated four interns from our summer intern programs.
Each intern is given an assignment that we outline during the interview process. They have 60 hours to complete their assignment along with all the wrenches we throw in the mix to give them a feel of how businesses are REALLY run.
So far, we have not had any of them runaway which shows us the quality of student enrolled at Ursuline Academy.
Mercedes followed the tradition of her predecessors by doing an excellent job. As all of the interns who have gone through our internship will tell you, the SyncLab Media Intern Program is not a coffee and donut run each morning.
Another Graduation Class
We say goodbye to Mercedes and wish her the best of luck in her senior year at Ursuline. Hope to see her back here applying for a job one day.
Following is Mercedes’ Farewell Blog.
I always enjoy writing blogs a lot. During my internship at SyncLab Media, my assignment was to write blogs. Blog writing has taught me how to paraphrase things and write in a different way that I haven’t learned in school. I learned the proper way to blog with tags and images.
Over the almost two months that I’ve been interning for SyncLab Media, I’ve done many different kinds of things. My main assignment was writing blogs for the website on subjects ranging from writing blogs for Chris Attig, a certified VA attorney, to outlining the benefits of hypnosis that Valerie Grimes performs at the Flow Center, to the advantages of the unique design techniques by Jeffrey Johnson Interior Design. I wrote blogs about SEO optimization, which included how to target your audience and how to expand your website for the Hispanic Market.
I have seen many video shoots, including PrideStaff, Party Chaser, and more. I even got to be in front of the camera while conducting my interview with Sir Earl Toon of the band Kool & the Gang, and future rock & roll hall of fame inductee! This interview was a great experience and one I will remember forever. I never thought I would have such a great opportunity. Even though the video is still in the editing process, when it’s available, you will be able to see it on my personal blog, Living My Crazy Life. Stay Tooned!
I think video shoots are one of my favorite parts of the internship. Preparing for our video shoots was a change of pace from our normal routine. Digital marketing is exciting because it allowed me to learn more about different businesses,and the people in those businesses. I also like seeing how videos are shot and the process they have to go through, which can take a long time to shoot even a short video.
I have enjoyed this experience greatly because I have learned a lot about the business world and marketing while having fun. Most of the time it seems like these two things don’t go together. Although I will miss this, I am excited for what my senior year has in store for me and I hope I can apply some of the knowledge that I have learned here to my schoolwork.
Thank you to everyone who has made this internship the best, especially Mark Neace and Scot Duke. Thanks to you, I’ve learned so much about the business and marketing world. I will remember this internship as a memorable one. Thank you.
This will be my last blog post, so thank you so much for reading and don’t forget to stay tuned on my personal blog! It has been a pleasure working for you, SyncLab Media. I wish you the best.
