Week 1

Although this is my first week of posting, this is not the first week of my internship! I started working for them over a month ago now, but it’s still just as exciting as when I first began. This past week was a hectic one as usually, we have conference calls every Tuesday, meaning my work is due every Tuesday. However, this was not the case this week. This week they wanted to send out a PDF about coffee almost like a magazine, but they wanted it by Thursday. That meant I only had TWO days to compile and design a thirteen-page guidebook about coffee, which by the way I didn’t know too much about to begin with. Despite my lack of knowledge on coffee they provided me with a brief outline of what they wanted and I began my work on this guidebook. Despite the short deadline I was proud to say I was able to complete it to the best of my abilities and turn it in on time! By that Friday my boss Heather had been able to look over it and only made minor changes, and then this guidebook was sent out to their email list! After being able to complete that I was then assigned to design a shorter condensed version of this meaning they only wanted one to two pages rather than thirteen, but for this I was given a full week. Given a full week to complete this you would think it would have been easier, but in all honesty, I struggled more with these two condensed pages than I did with my thirteen pages and the short deadline. However, before this, I always thought that I didn’t work all to well under pressure but with this assignment I proved myself wrong. So overall this experience helped with my design skills, but also my confidence in myself to be able to get things done in a timely manner.

One thought on “Week 1”

  1. Condensed writing is usually hard. It forces you to economize your words. This looks like it was a useful exercise to prove this realization. Also glad to read that your internship has you further developing writing skills.
