This marks the end of the third week of my internship here at Sircle Media. This is my first experience in the real world and I wouldn’t change a thing so far. Before coming into the office on the first day, I had no idea what to expect; I was terrified. I walk into the building and asked the lady at the front desk what floor Sircle Media is located on. She gave me the most confused look and said that it didn’t exist. All I was thinking is, “Great I already messed up and I’m not even there yet, It’s all downhill from here!.” Even though it turned out I was in the right building and the lady didn’t look it up in the right place. Thank goodness we figured it out!
I finally walked into the office and it was nice to see a large wall of windows looking out into New York City (pretty cool for my first “job”). I was greeted by Adam, and three of my co-workers who each know so much about all the Social Media platforms. I was warmly welcomed and just dove right into the world of Social Media.
I sat down with Adam as he was explaining to me what Sircle Media was all about and how my internship will be a great learning experience, and he really wasn’t lying! I also sat in on a meeting with one of their clients on my first day and I was so intrigued. I was actually able to see and hear how Sircle Media interacts with their clients firsthand.
Now that I’ve been here for three weeks, I’ve been doing a lot of work on Pinterest and Instagram for Sircle Media’s clients. The work that happens behind the scenes of Social Media is just so interesting to me! I’m more ready than ever to dive into this business.
Although this is my first time in a work environment, I realize that I really enjoy a small close-knit company that makes such a huge difference for their clients. It’s safe to say that I am learning so much and having a great and exciting experience at the same time. I hope to continue to learn and to help make a big difference during my time here!
