You never know the skills that you don’t have until you are forced to use and develop them. I have only been working on my internship for a little over two weeks, but I have grown and expanded so many personal skills. I have learned how to create my own schedule and how to coordinate with other peoples schedules and I have expanded my skills of organization, time management, teaching, and my artistic abilities.
Throughout this internship, I have been working with ten different businesses, but because each one has a separate goal in mind of what they want from this internship, they each have me working on something completely different from the next. I am working for these businesses: Ag Service Associates, Bow Booterie, Bow Family Furniture and Flooring, Bruce Forrester’s Auto Sales, Chapin’s Furniture and Design, Custer Economic Development Corporation, Holcomb Pharmacy, P.C., Ideal Reality, LLC, KCNI 1280 AM KBBN 95.3 FM, and the Broken Bow Chamber Office.
I have been designing and helping to further develop logo designs for Bow Family Furniture and Flooring, Holcomb Pharmacy, P.C., and KCNI 1280 AM and KBBN 95.3 FM. I am working on making Facebook accounts, ads, and cover photos for Ag Service Associates, Bow Booterie, Bruce Forrester’s Auto Sales, Chapin’s Furniture and Decorating, and Holcomb Pharmacy, P.C.. Custer Economic Development Corporation has me working on getting their upcoming new website details sorted out and on the website correctly, Ideal Reality, LLC has me teaching them how to use Adobe Photoshop, and the Broken Bow Chamber of Commerce has challenged me to update some old fliers and community events.
In the beginning, it was very challenging for me to get organized and develop the necessary skills for the requirements of this internship. Once, I got past that stage, I was able to relax and enjoy my work. Even in the little time that I have been working in this internship I have developed so many skills that will continue to grow through out the rest of this internship and my life.
