Last week, I started an internship at Great Lakes Integrated Network. Great Lakes Integrated Network (GLIN) is an independent physician-led association in downtown Buffalo, NY. I am extremely excited to be assisting their marketing team in rebranding. My first week went really well. My supervisor introduced me to all the wonderful people I get the opportunity to work with. I can already tell I am going to really like this internship.
As soon as I arrived I was set up with an employee ID and a parking pass. Next, my supervisor went over everything the GLIN rebrand will entail. This included ordering new apparel for employees, creating a new logo, updating/creating new social media accounts, planning events, and more. The project I was tasked with was creating brand new Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts for GLIN. I also got the opportunity to start familiarizing myself with the software HubSpot. HubSpot is a social media posting tool that allows you to schedule all of you social media posts for the week.
My supervisor provided me a list of things I will be participating in while interning at GLIN. The list contains different projects, meetings, and activities I will be involved in. I have already learned about new social media software and tactics. I think this internship is going to be a great learning opportunity for me.
I am impressed with the level of autonomy you have already been able to achieve so early in your internship. It sounds like you are wasting no time digging into your assignments! Keep up the great work.
