My internship ended yesterday, and I didn’t expect to feel so strongly about it as I do. During the summer, there were several moments where I was sitting at my desk doing busy work thinking that I could be doing something better. But now I know that moments like those come with just about any job. Lulls happen, and exciting things happen even more often if you seek them out.
The more I got comfortable and talked about what I was passionate about at Gorilla Flicks, the more engaging the conversations were with my co-workers and the more connections I made. Those connections took me around southern California and showed me places I never would have found if I wasn’t looking for them, like the most high class places in Beverly Hills, San Diego Comic Con, San Francisco music festivals, and more.
I leave Gorilla Flicks truly feeling like I gained valuable experience within the field and advanced my networking capabilities. I’m looking forward to next summer, where I plan on coming back to Los Angeles to another company that needs interns! (Hopefully paid this time)
