Meet Ian, our New Intern!
February 21, 2018
My name is Ian, and I’m the new sales and marketing intern here at Boxman Studios. In addition to learning the ins and outs of the business, I’ll help create some awesome videos that show what Boxman is all about! I thought it would be fun to document my first impressions now and use them as a comparison at the end of my internship.
Every single morning at 8:30, the team gathers around a whiteboard and David, our CEO makes sure everyone is on the same page in terms of projects. I love this because it demonstrates that communication across all departments is a top priority here. I’ve been in situations where this was not addressed, and the headaches could have been avoided. Not the case here.
As an intern, I have two main expectations in addition to video projects: I schedule the social media posts every Monday and write one blog post per week (goal accomplished). These are perfect for me because, 1) I’m comfortable with social media but I’ve never managed multiple accounts before, and 2) I should write more than I already do. The only things I write are essays and reflections, which probably won’t suit me well in a professional setting.
I’ll be honest, some of the jargon related to manufacturing has gone over my head. I found myself in a meeting, trying to make sense of what I heard and writing all the terms down as quickly as possible. That being said, my past internships have taught me that it takes time to pick up on how a company or organization runs, and this is no different. I hope that by the time I finish here at Boxman, I can understand our process and how we do what we do. I can’t wait to see where this internship takes me, and I’ll be back with another blog post at some point down the road!
Oh, we have an office dog named Jayda. She’s awesome.
