Pre-First Day Thoughts:
Now, is marketing what I want to do my whole life? I don't know, it might be. I heard the coursework requires a lot of math so I'll definitely have to consider that.
Was a marketing internship my first choice? I was really looking for something to do with event planning and public relations. I probably won't be planning and executing wedding budget plans any time soon.. but it's a start.
Do I even know what marketing is? To me, marketing is organizing a plan that will work best for a company in order to help them reach their audience the way they'd like to. (I could be wrong though, so you'll have to stick around)
What am I looking forward to most? I'm mostly excited to LEARN about marketing strategies, meet new people, web maintenance, and hopefully attend some events.
What should I wear on my first day? Because I didn't actually look at anyone other than my manager during my interview session, I wasn't sure what the average worker wears. Therefore, I sported a nice shirt toned down with a casual cardigan while staying professional in my slacks and comfortable heels.
What should I take? I'm used to constantly drinking water and an hour without water could possibly throw off all my concentration. So, I've made it a habit to bring some with me wherever I go. I also don't want to be taking water fountain laps on my first day. I also carry tissues in case of emergencies (even the ones that don't involve my nose, you just never know). I packed bandaids in case my feet weren't going to handle a 9-5 shift in heels. Lastly, I packed a loaded sandwich with Blue Chips in a ziplock since I wasn't sure of the lunch conditions.
Am I excited about my internship? Yes!!
