It’s a gloomy, rainy day, so I’m glad that I’m spending my time at my internship with The Leader. At first, I’m not sure what to think. After chowing down on Dunkin’ Donuts, I sit in a conference room with the other intern, Alex, and seven employees discussing sales, goals, and Wiz Khalifa. I feel like I am really tense and nervous, but I’m pretty sure that’s just the magic of watching The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies late last night. We toured The Leader’s facility, and it was really neat to see where the printing presses and dark rooms used to be. Now, it’s mostly coupon storage. Apparently, they have to lock the doors because people were coming in to the building at night. One thing that would make my experience better is having laptops that have the ability to type emojis. I feel like my writing is much less personal and doesn’t convey the same tone without them.
Megan Cole just introduced our sales process project regarding communications with The Leader. I’m not exactly sure what my plan is, but I will just have to figure it out. I think it will be a great way to practice my presentation skills, though, and I’m really excited. It’s stressing me out a little because I have three exams this week, but I think it will be okay. I think this experience will open my opportunities in the field of journalism, and I can’t wait to see how these two weeks will unfold.
