I have many responsibilities in my position as an intern at Top Floor Management. I was given a M,W,F intern schedule that outlines what I am supposed to work on hour by hour. Some of these responsibilities include sourcing creators for upcoming campaigns, adding micro-creators to our google drive sheets, sending brand pitches, creating social media content, creating campaign briefs, and setting up meetings with creators to sign on. On top of these responsibilities, I am given additional tasks depending on the day and campaigns we are currently working on as an agency.
I truly believe I am learning new things everyday during my internship. My greatest accomplishment so far is researching and sourcing creators to send to my supervisor who end up being a great fit for the campaign. My goal everyday is to find good quality creators who have the potential of landing the brand deal, but when it happens I feel so accomplished. Moments like these are what motivate me to continue working hard for my success as an intern!
Like I had previously stated, everyday is different which can make things confusing at times. One of the biggest lessons I have learned is to not be afraid to ask questions. At the beginning of my internship, I was sometimes afraid to ask questions because I did not want it to seem like I was not listening to directions. As my internship has progressed, I learned that asking questions actually shows that you care about the quality of work you are doing and that you have a high standard that you hold yourself to. Ever since learning this, I have been able to learn more things and succeed at my tasks with ease and less confusion.
What advice would you give?
The biggest piece of advice I would give for Event Management students is to never say no to things until you try them. The event industry is so broad and there are so many different avenues you can go through, so try them all. Even if you think you will hate planning weddings but get the opportunity to intern at a wedding planning company, do it! The way events are planned are very similar, no matter the event, so it will never hurt to try many routes and learn tips/tricks along the way to help you succeed in your career as an Event Planner.
