The Intern Experience – Sircle Style

Internships are a right of passage of sorts, for many college students. As much as you can learn in the classroom, there is no substitute for the real-world experience you can gain through interning with a company that interests you. It provides valuable intel and skills, that will ultimately help you get a job come graduation.

We have eleven interns at Sircle this summer with a variety of interests and University majors. Each one works hard with our team to learn new skills every day. According to intern Nicole Schrum, the best part about interning with Sircle Media is how much she learns on a daily basis.

“My favorite part of this internship so far is definitely being able to learn about how to utilize social media in a business setting,” she said. “I have always been interested in how different companies use social media to promote products, and now I’m learning so much about it every day while interning.”

Erinn Magrosky, another intern, agrees, adding that Sircle’s hands-on approach to teaching their interns has helped her grow immensely.

“Week by week I’m learning so much and expanding my knowledge about social media and how it impacts a business,” she said.

Another important part of interning is getting used to an office atmosphere and learning to work with all kinds of people. Intern Ricki Friedman cites this coming together of minds is one of the best parts of interning with Sircle.

“My favorite part of this internship so far is working together with everyone despite our differences,” she said. “We all have various thinking patterns and ideas, and it’s cool to see how our thoughts all come together when creating something.”

But interning at Sircle Media isn’t all work and no play. In a field that requires so much creativity, fun is an inevitability.

Shrum said she enjoys the adulthood version of field trips that she gets to take to find the perfect inspiration for a brand. “My favorite moments are going around New York City to create content for clients,” she said. “It allows us to be creative and take really cool photos for the clients.”

Ricki agreed that getting creative for content is one of the best parts of the experience. “Everyone was giving us skeptical looks and I loved every second of it,” she said of turning a conference room into a studio for an impromptu photo shoot.

As our interns (or Future Community Managers as we like to call them) prepare to hit the ground running for the second half of their internship, intern Nicole Becht reflects back on her first half and shares some valuable advice. “Work hard all the time, have fun and stay focused. Only you can take yourself to where you want to be.” This is great advice for the whole team and future interns who will join us this fall.  Can’t wait to meet ‘em.
