Experience Details
Position Title: 
Intern
Responsibilites / Tasks: 
My responsibilities included daily media monitoring, research support, press release writing, and print design. I start each day by monitoring the media for information that would be useful to clients. The rest of the day is spent providing support as necessary, be it preparing a list of media contacts or drafting a press release.
Projects / Initiatives: 
Designed a national print advertisement in a marketing effort conducted by Visa Canada Designed a promotional brochure for the Safer Parking Initiative Layed out reports for a research funding organisation
What did you learn: 
I learned how to work in a corporate environment and how to deal with difficult clients. Politics are an interwoven part of larger companies, and while the Vancouver was spared most of it, I was able to witness it unfold in other offices. I also learned that clients will sometimes have borderline unreasonable requests, and a compromise will often have to be sought. I also learned all the basics of PR and GR.
Tips / Advice: 
Be willing to learn and put in the extra time to make yourself valuable. Anyone is able to appreciate an honest effort to add value.
