By: Rachel Lederer, intern / geek & creative @ wisnet
Now that I am halfway through my internship at wisnet, I have learned a lot. But not necessarily about web design, which is what I initially wanted to do when I came here. It makes sense that I didn’t learn a whole lot though, because that is not my specialty. Working with people and figuring out ways to make their lives better is what I am good at, and the people at wisnet have helped me realize how much good I can actually do.
I still don’t have a specific idea in mind of what I want to do as a career, in life after college, and I doubt that I will ever have that in mind, because I think that would narrow my search too much of what I want to do. I know for sure I love working with people, event planning and collaborating with others to create social media campaigns. I have figured out that I do not want to work in web design business, but here at wisnet there is a good distinction between web design and customer care. I have amazing team members who are willing to help me get from point A to point B in a way different from what I am used to. After all, wisnet is a team of Geeks & Creatives. Here, the geeks and creatives work together as a team, and there is no distinction between them. The wisnet team includes everyone, no matter what their background may be.
Overall I enjoy my internship here at wisnet, because I feel like I am appreciated and have a purpose. I am not the typical intern that goes on coffee runs and serves as more of a secretary. I have made my mark here, expanding on social media campaigns for clients and working on client onboarding and tutorials, and I am glad I had the opportunity to become a part of this team. I am excited to see what the future (well actually the rest of the summer) holds here at wisnet.
