Spring 2018

Position: Marketing Intern
Student: Economics Junior

A day in the life of a SkylesBayne intern varies depending on your schedule because they know that school is a priority. For me, I worked 16 hours a week, staring at 9 AM every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I would start my day by checking my email to make sure there are not any time sensitive projects that I need to begin with.

My day varied depending on the needs of the CEO, Director of Operations and the Brokers. Some weeks were spent helping the CEO with the events that we sponsored. This included, setting up a save the date and invitation to send out to the list of guests that I compiled based on who is best fits the event type. I coordinate with the venue to ensure that everything is set up properly. 

My favorite days were the ones that ended with attending a networking or Happy Hour event hosted by the many local companies and organizations. This gave me the unique opportunity to get to know real world professionals and network in a setting not related to recruiting. I was amazed at how important networking is to even adults with well-established careers. The Austin community is extremely supportive of one another, making it a great environment for startups. My company spent a lot of time sponsoring and supporting community events, especially startups because they are likely to need office space.
