Front Gate Tickets

Spring 2018

Position: Marketing & Content Writing Intern
Student: Rhetoric & Writing Sophomore

I’m currently a senior at the University of Texas at Austin and interned for Front Gate Tickets from fall 2018- spring 2018. The company redefines the ticketing company as it promotes tickets by targeting the right audience, promotes the biggest festivals, and partners with the largest ticketing company in the world--Ticketmaster.  This internship was not offered through the university, instead I found my passion which has always been singing and making music. This was the best decision of my life, I found something I was passionate about and interviewed for a Marketing position even though I was a Rhetoric & Writing Major and got the position.

I would hope that this internship became more available to students like you because it is an industry where tasks are to be met in a daily basis and if not you end up slowing down the company. It’s a fast-paced environment and could be hectic at times to meet deadlines but reality is that is a job for you and once that hectic moment is out of the way you can relax in the lounge, get some snacks, iced brew coffee, and socialize. There were many responsibilities I had some of them being; assisting in content creation, development of newsletters, emails, updating reports, and analyzing marketing data and trends. Let’s say I were to go in on a Friday, I would grab my coffee, and immediately update our ticket alert spreadsheet that shows our sales for the week and email it to our clients through google analytics. Then I would write about two feature detailed pages or blog posts to create content or promote festivals, then make sure that any tasks my boss and team emailed me about were completed before leaving the office.
