GREAT PEOPLE, GREAT COMPANY!
It is common thought that an internship consists of work that no one else wants to do. That has been my thought. I am happy to say that my experience at Zapwater as been anything but useless busy work. The people are great, and the experience is priceless. I actually enjoy coming to work. There is lots of work to be done, but there is help and support in every direction.
In my first week I was on the phone talking with media outlets (WBBM-TV | CBC 2 Chicago and WLS-TV | ABC 7 Chicago) . In my second week I was meeting with a client about strategy. In the third week I learned hard work does pay off when I assisted in securing an exclusive for another client. On the surface it would seem that the media lists, pitch calls and research yielded good results, and that’s true, but without the help of the Zapwater staff this experience would be just another common thought. I have learned more than I ever expected in the few weeks that I have worked here, and because of what I have learned, I am becoming a better professional. Things are great here, and it’s all because of the great company! Thanks for the experience!
