Marketing Intern

May 2019 • Atlanta, GA

I liked how personable and close-knit my office was. I also enjoyed the different perspectives I engaged with. I worked in the Mayor's Office of Film & Entertainment so it allowed me to learn more about the entertainment industry from a government standpoint. I assisted with numerous activations for the City and helped put on numerous events.

What I liked

The staff is extremely pliable with your school schedule and make sure you get paid for all services provided for the City.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have actually been placed within the department of my major, but spots are limited and the internship cannot control which departments accept interns.

Advice

I would definitely recommend another student to stay up to date with everything and respond promptly to emails. Also, any concerns you have, ask questions. They HR department will help with anything needed.

Project management intern

May 2017 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

I liked working with people who helped to cultivate my skills and make sure I was learning

What I wish was different

The location of my desk

Advice

I would tell them to be kind to everyone they work for and always be diligent no matter the task. When people work for a company for a long time they know a majority of their co workers no matter how large their employer may be. It'll be easier for you to be placed permanently if people are speaking well on your behalf.
