An Internship Worth the Commute
I started interning with Ilfusion at the beginning of February, and I think that I am the only person from Tarleton State University that has interned there. My commute from Stephenville to Ft. Worth four days a week was 66 miles one way. Some might think this is crazy to commute that far for an internship, but with everything that I have learned from Ilfusion, I am positive that my internship was worth every mile.
My role at Ilfusion was a PR/social media intern, but as the semester went on, I learned about far more than social media and PR. Ilfusion is a very open company that engages all of its employees in every aspect of the company. Everyone at Ilfusion was very welcoming from the moment I walked in the door and I was able to participate in a very fun and exciting work environment. I always had work to do that was important for the company and never had to do “busy work”, like a lot of people experience with internships. In fact, my favorite part of my internship was the work environment. Everyone at Ilfusion made me feel like a part of the team.
The duties that I performed for social media gave me a tremendous insight to working with clients in the real world. I learned how to use social media in order to help clients engage their target audiences better and gain the best online presence possible. The importance of client satisfaction and understanding has also taught me a lot about PR and how imperative it is to represent clients in the best ways that you can. I also learned the importance of teamwork and respecting everything that other teammates do, because at the end of the day, everyone is working together to create the best results possible for clients.
Working with Ilfusion has taught me the importance of building relationships inside and outside of work. I feel like I have grown my network immensely and that I can start building my career with confidence. I will truly miss working with everyone at Ilfusion, and I recommend this internship to anyone looking to gain knowledge in marketing, social media, PR, graphic design, and having an awesome time.
