Well, this is the penultimate post in my blog series! Week #10 has come and gone and it was another awesome week. This week, while detailing what went down, I had some influence in the office over some of my co-workers and I had the chance to talk to some awesome incoming freshmen this week!
So this past week at work, some of my primary responsibilities included helping design a training program for a client with our team in California as well as continuing to branch out our media channels. Most notably, I developed a Pinterest account for Ardent based off of the models of other training firms in our industry. While I am not the most experienced when it comes to using Pinterest for social media marketing, a training firm that specializes in coming up with creative solutions needs to have a medium to creatively display what it does.
Last week, a food truck called Le Petit Poutine stopped outside our office in High Falls and no one seemed to know what it was. As someone who has had it before, I was able to convince our creative director Bob to try some and we were able to bond and learn a lot about each other. He is a great guy and has been helpful to me throughout the entire internship. Plus, poutine is absolutely delicious and you NEED to try it!
After having been a Resident Advisor for the past two years as well as being an Orientation Assistant this year, I love to try and help new students become acquainted with RIT and help them love it as much as I do. So this past Wednesday, I was able to meet some incoming freshmen from Buffalo and their parents at the Alumni Send-Off. There, I was able to share with them my experience at RIT and give them tips and tricks on how to be the best student they can be. It was such a gratifying feeling to receive positive feedback from both the students and the parents and I hope I can continue to be a good face of RIT at these events!
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
