Tips for Interns at a PR or Advertising Firm

I have interned with Savannah magazine for the past three months and I am currently in the process of hopefully gaining an internship with Edelman for this summer.

I found this video very helpful and interesting. Sometimes, as college students, we don’t fully understand why our professors make us do certain things. This video helps me understand the importance of blogging and social media literacy.

The director lays out three basic ways that interns can use social media to help their organizations:

  1. Listen
  2. Shadow
  3. Become a Persona

    Thanks for posting this video. This summer I have to hold an internship position. So, even though I have not completed my internship yet, I found this video helpful for future encounters. I loved how he broke down what you need to do into 3 easy steps. You are right about using what we have learned through social media this semester, and using it in the future. Throughout this video he discusses twitter. There are so many options out there for ways to network and connect with people, we just have to be willing to reach out and take advantage of the opportunity. Thanks for sharing.
