After three short months with Moxie, summer has come to an end, and unfortunately, so has my internship. Next week, I will be returning to Penn State to finish my college career. But, thanks to Moxie, I will go back to school with top-notch experience and many fond memories.
Moxie is a truly wonderful group of hard-working and creative women, and I am very thankful to have spent the summer with them. From my very first day here, I knew it wasn’t your ordinary internship. In fact, I could tell at my interview when Julie, President and Founder of Moxie, invited me to join a brainstorming session. As I sat at the table with the creative individuals from the Moxie team, I was in awe of the way they worked together. I was welcomed as if I were already part of the team and immediately got to see how hard they work for their clients.
That day, Julie asked me what I wanted to experience while I was here and how they could make the summer more beneficial to me. That really set the tone for my experience with Moxie. I knew I would be getting valuable experience with a great company. And I was right.
It didn’t take long for me to get involved in big projects. In my first week, I had the opportunity to write radio spots, write a press release (which I had never done before) and take part in another brainstorming session. While the brainstorming sessions were one of my favorite aspects of the internship, I worked on a number of other awesome projects. (Really, they were all exciting!)
I contributed ideas to social media plans and helped create a blog post about brand colors and their meanings. I also had the opportunity to help promote upcoming events through social media, community calendars and other news sources. Later, I measured the success of our efforts by compiling various PR reports. I really enjoyed the involvement with the PR-side of the agency; not all ‘marketing’ interns get that kind of experience.
Another one of my favorite projects was working on a Twitter sweepstakes campaign. From research and street-teaming to radio deliveries and getting behind-the-scenes at radio stations, I gained a lot of insight.
I have learned so much at Moxie, and I had a blast doing it! I am thankful to have the incredible experience they have given me. I couldn’t ask for a better group of women to work with, either. The Moxie team is definitely dedicated, friendly, enthusiastic and incredibly welcoming. All more reason why Moxie is a great company to get to know!
