These past two months has been a great experience for me. As a native New Orleanian, coming to South Florida was a much anticipated change. Spring semester this past year I realized that I wanted to leave New Orleans for the summer for an internship elsewhere. My only criteria was that I wanted to go somewhere sunny with a beach. I eventually began searching for opportunities in Florida.

I found Peak Seven Advertising through a simple Google search and saw that they were a small boutique agency with some major clients. At first glance, I figured this agency may be a good fit so I emailed Kata Breman my resume and cover letter, and called many times (most likely more times than necessary) until I received a response.

Once I arrived to South Florida I knew it would be different for me. Though the weather was very similar to New Orleans: it was distinct simply because I was away from home. My first day at the office, everyone made sure to make me feel welcomed as I became acquainted to the agency. I learned many hilarious things about this office on my first day which made me feel as if this could be a place I would come to enjoy and it did.

Here at Peak Seven I learned how daily agency life goes including how hectic it can be to how completely calm some days are. I was able to sit in various creative meetings and client meetings. I was able to witness how we the agency interacted with the client as well as client/agency frustrations all a part of daily agency work.

I unexpectedly learned the most about online marketing. At Loyola University of New Orleans I am studying mass communication with a focus in advertising, this sequence allows me to learn about the creative side of advertising, like how to develop a campaign and social media strategies. With my sequence I haven’t learned as many online marketing techniques and practices. Though this year will be my senior year and I will most likely learn some about online marketing, it was great to be able to get a head start learning this useful information.

I was able to work with Google Adwords and create a few landing pages for some of our clients. In the process of working with both of those tools, I learned basics of how online marketing works and its purpose. I also became acquainted with moz blog, inbound.com, and kissmetrics blog. These blogs are all great online marketing tools that will be useful in whatever field I decide to go into. I’ve learned some about SEO and how valuable it is.

Overall, I have enjoyed my time in South Florida at Peak Seven Advertising. I will go on to use all of the tools and skills I have learned this upcoming year and in my career. This internship has been a valuable experience for me and am thankful for the opportunity.
