Summer of ’13
Written By Darren Seys - August 23, 2013
At the beginning of the summer, I had no idea what to expect. What kind of tasks was I going to be assigned exactly? What was I going to learn? I soon learned that there wasn’t going to be a limit to what I could learn.
There was hardly ever a dull moment in the office
During my time here at Peak Seven, I had the opportunity to learn and improve my technical skills with Microsoft Excel, WordPress CMS, and even a little bit of Adobe Photoshop. But my learning experience didn’t end there. I also sharpened my organization and time management skills while being introduced into the fast paced world of advertising. The office lingo and industry terminology quickly revealed themselves to me, and I soon found myself answering frequent emails and juggling multiple projects like all the other team members. It was challenging to be thrown into a project that was already underway, but the experience allowed me to understand client-agency relationships, gain insight into the workings of the industry, and see the importance of clear communication.
Overall, I had a very memorable experience. I learned about some of the many facets of the industry while gaining firsthand exposure to the culture and working environment of advertising. There was hardly ever a dull moment in the office, and my time at Peak Seven was one of the highlights of my summer.comments powered by Disqus Share
