Starting Another Internship
I started a new job this week. Last Wednesday was my last day at my Sony spring internship in the Ad Sales Marketing Department. I now work in the Media Relations Department of MediaLink Worldwide.
Medialink is a global provider of news and marketing strategies, enabling more than 3,000 clients as wide ranging as major auto makers, important scientific associations and not-for-profit organizations to reach target audiences with maximum impact on television, radio, print, and the Internet.
My Sony internship was a fascinating glimpse into the behind-the-scenes world of the television business, especially how that business runs on the whims of advertising. Specifically, I crunched Nelsons data all day and integrated it into Excel spreadsheets. As revealing and important as it was, it was not the most stimulating work.
I think the MediaLink internship is going to be far more rewarding and enjoyable. Brought on to write, my job will be authoring media advisories and scripts for television and radio spots. Not a bad way to spend a summer devoid of any classes.
