Journal Three

This is the second and a half-ish week since I started my internship and it is just the beginning of my internship. My role within Student Life and Development is to create  advertisements and promote their events through print and using their social media platform (ie. posting up flyers around school, also on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.) I am also responsible for running errands for the office when ever they need me to. I am so excited to start on different projects but I have not yet received anything to do yet. Hopefully I get to do something soon because I am starting to get bored.

If you were wondering, “How did you get this internship with Student life and Development?”  Well here’s how it happened. I attended a Leadership Retreat last semester that was hosted by Student Life. I decided that it would be a good opportunity for me if I went on this retreat. In a nutshell, you learned how to become a better leader,  improving your communication skills and to encourage others around you. After the retreat I learned so much. I decided that I would take my chances and a few weeks before this semester started I asked the manager of the office if they were accepting interns and I gave her my resume. I got a call a week later to have a meeting. Two weeks later, I got a call that I got the internship.

Vanessa Villanueva, theManager of the Office of Student Life and Development, is a very nice woman and she was the person that interviewed me and also directed me to the person that I will  be working closely with in the office. Vanessa went through and Informed me  what my role is and how I can help outside of that as well.
