Hey y’all! It’s Friday once again, so enjoy your weekend as much as you can! School is almost here.
Have you ever been a part of a team? You could have been part of a sports team or a team for a group project for school. When someone thinks of an internship, he or she thinks that there is only one intern that does all of the work. Also, that one intern only brings one side of creativity to the table for that business or program, leaving there much to be left behind. I have been a part of an internship team and it has been probably one of the best experiences I’ve ever had.
I am one of five interns and each of us has brought new ideas to this internship that could not have been accomplished without the others. I love going to the gym and I like the hospitality and tourism market, so it was natural for me to build relationships with those markets, and hold events at those locations. The other interns did the same and targeted their favorite markets of fashion, Greek life, the military, athletes, and the fans of athletes. It would have been very difficult for one intern to accomplish as much as our team has accomplished this summer.
As the #beanteam belles, we can say that we have created friendships among our target markets, friendships with the Lowcountry Food Bank, and friendships with each other. The stress and pressure has been reduced because of such passionate and hard-working interns that I call my co-workers and now, friends. I would greatly recommend such a program as this for any business because that business would benefit tremendously and so would those who were chosen as interns.
Here is a picture of the #beanteam’s beginnings at the Lowcountry Food Bank:
