Goodbye Note From Cristi
Last week we had to say goodbye to our Intern, Cristi Porta. Before she left, she shared her Village&Co. intern experience.
What would you tell all future interns?
I would say expect the unexpected; the wonderful thing about working in this agency is that everyday is different, this group works hard but also has a lot of fun in the process. Oh, and be ready to hit the ground running (no slow-pokes work here, everyone hustles).
What was the best advice you received while at Village&Co.?
Thoughts on Social Media before and after:
- Before: “Social Media is FUN!”
- After: “Social media has so many levels, and each is extremely important. Creating a copy for a client has a lot of effort and creativity behind it (that’s why Village&Co are the experts).”
Funniest/Best one liner was__________:
"I’m trying to run a business here."
Sum up each member of the team with one GIF
Justin: When you ask Justin a question.
Nora: “I’m trying to run a business here.”
Kiran: The one with all the answers.
Cassandra: When Cass receives a DM from Mr. Stroumboulopoulos.
Megan: After I think I create the perfect post and Megan has a peek over it.
Monkey: If you’re eating it, she wants it.
Sum up your experience at Village&Co. in one GIF.
Final Words from Cristi
I want to thank Village&Co. for choosing me as your intern this term; not only did I learn more about the industry, but I really discovered a lot about myself. This awesome group of individuals are defiantly a power-house in social media. Social media marketing is a 24-7 job and I realized that after taking on this internship. From 11pm GroupMe chats on ideas for a client, to the early Sunday morning GIF email chains, Village&Co. is on it (for real, this team never stops)!
I came into this internship believing I would want to focus on the accounts side of the industry, so the team made sure I was able to get my feet wet and experience what an accounts manager does. Halfway through my internship they allowed me to dabble in the more creative side of the agency which I came to realize I really enjoyed… something I would have never figured out if not for this amazing opportunity!
If you are interested in social media marketing and want to get a feel for an marketing office environment with the day-to-day workings, I highly recommend you apply for the next round of interning here at Village&Co. I promise you will not be disappointed!
