A Goodbye Note From Loretta
Last week we said farewell and good luck to our #villageintern, Loretta Yang. Before she headed to her next adventure, she took the time to share her Village&Co. experience.
What would you tell all future interns?
Create new opportunities for yourself by thinking 2 steps ahead; an agency’s a fast-paced environment (hustling is mandatory), and by continuously asking yourself “what next?” you’ll find great chances to jump into new projects you’re interested in.
What was the best advice you received while at Village&Co. to date?
Thoughts on Social Media before and after?
- Before: Social media keeps everyone connected.
- After: Social media is a lifestyle, it makes the world go round, and content can take weeks for an office to curate #respect
Funniest/Best one liner was ____________:
Sum up each member of the team with one GIF.
Justin: Justin when he comes up with a brilliant creative strategy
Nora: My expectation of Nora on religion.
Janice: Janice when eating lunch - because productivity is key.
Cassandra: Cassandra when content generating gets overwhelming #trooper
Carolina: Carolina when hot liquids became her enemy
Monkey: Monkey just being monkey. #theusual
Sum up your experience at Village&Co. in one GIF.
Final words from Loretta
For starters, I’ve definitely never met a more dedicated group of people. In fact, saying the Village&Co. team lives and breathes social media would probably be an understatement.
From the minute I walked in, I was welcomed by bunch of crazy characters who showed me the ins and outs of pitching, client management, content development — and the best place to go for hipster gourmet coffee.
Though this quick 3 month internship flew by, I’m so grateful for all the insight I’ve been able to gain in this unique agency environment. Emojis are a mutual language in this office, and it’s been a blast being able to learn from a team that perfectly balances work and play.
Thank you for an invaluable experience, I’ll never forget it!
