The work I do here is quite different from the work I did in my previous internships. In my previous internships, the companies were already pretty established so all the work I did there were contributions to big projects, helping behind the scenes, or taking phone calls, etc. However, since the company that I’m working for right now is a start up with my supervisor working by herself, all the work that I do here reflect the company and gets published the exact way I make it.
In Midsummer Tea, I am creating content for social media here all day, every day, which is honestly pretty fun but hard at the same time. I love photography and videography, but most of all, I love editing my work; and since these are the things expected of me every day, this internship is truly enjoyable. However, I’ve never put my social media skills to test before and I found it hard to figure out what the consumers liked. Some content that I thought was amazing wouldn’t get as much attention as some of the ones that I wasn’t very proud of. Sometimes it can get frustrating because the results come in slow and it requires constant time and effort. While on the other hand, I am given the whole span of the internship to figure out the social media attraction and hopefully get it in a good place before I leave back home.
