Position: Digital Marketing Internship
Student: Sociology Senior

Currently I’m a marketing intern at MyITpros. It’s located away from downtown and campus in Walnut Creek Business Park, and while that’s good traffic wise, it means that I have schedule all my classes on one day and be completely available to work on the rest of the days of the week. For example, I go to school on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, while going to work on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It’s kind of complicated for me to explain a common day in the life for a marketing intern, because honestly, it changes every day. On Tuesdays, the most common days looks like me getting to work at 8 am and beginning work on a list of tasks that is constantly changing by the day. From writing blog posts, to creating graphics for blogs, to editing news letters to working on drip campaigns, it’s constantly changing and being flexible is definitely a requirement for everything to get done on time. Of course, in there is a chance to take an hour lunch and short breaks and everything, but it’s mostly just working on my own for most of the day. Thursdays, on the other hand are a bit more structure. Thursday, I get to work at 8, have about 30 minutes to prepare myself for a morning full of meetings. Then at 8:30, I go into sales and marketing meetings. The company is small, so the sales and marketing team is made up of me, my boss, a sales associate and the CEO of the company. We sit in a meeting and talk about what has happened in the sales and marketing aspects of the company in the last week and go over what upcoming projects need to be finished by the next time we come to the meeting. This meeting usually finishes at about 10, and then from 10-10:30 my boss and I usually have a meeting with the graphic design team, to find out what they need from us and what they can do to help us succeed. After most of the morning is taken up by meetings, it’s pretty much work on your assignments. The only other scheduled part of Thursdays is a 3:00 call with our SEO company, where they update us on our online presence and what they are doing with the money they give, and after that call, I work on my assignments until the end of the day. About once a month, everyone in the company is asked to come in an hour early at 7am so that we can have a monthly staff meeting. As I’ve been told, my hours are mine, but usually I end up leaving around 5, to make the most of my time there.
