|How Rewarding Was It?|
It was outlined for me on the first day of the internship itself. At first I handled odd tasks, such as helping to come up with content. Later on, I was given more to handle. I was told to manage the entire social media calendar for August, which meant coming up with content, editing, and execution. It basically got more structured later on.
I made a point of asking during my interview if I would get close contact with a mentor. Mentor support was crucial to the learning experience at TFM. The internship met my expectations. It pitted my principles against my head; in the end I came away enriched with experience, and with the soft-skills that I wanted. But I know now that working with the staff in the office is not something I want to do after graduating, and the corporate world is definitely not something I can do long-term.
1. Those who are thinking of going into education and those looking at social initiatives and enterprises. 2. Anyone who has plenty of initiative!
