Digital Summer Clinic: Week 6

 We are in the home stretch of the Digital Summer Clinic, and I am confident that we will all finish strong! The marketing strategy guidebook that my partner and I are completing is in its first final draft stage, and we will be reviewing our work with RXA on Wednesday to garner feedback and showcase what we have stayed busy with. I am continuing to develop my editing skills for the highlight video content, specifically when it comes to animation. I am putting more time than I am reporting into this, but I figured that this would be a great skill to have in my back pocket. Plus, I find that I really enjoy video editing!

Work has really been ramping up as we come to a close, and as I am simultaneously a Field Manger for the clinic as well as an intern, I have been trying to make the best of what little time I have left in both these positions. The experiences have been great so far, and one thing that has developed in me is the confidence of applying for more specific positions in marketing. I am actively searching for marketing jobs, searching for communication positions, ad creation, and potentially analytic positions. I look forward to meeting with individuals who were in my position and are now successful professionally, as I have began reaching out to meet with people for a drink and to gain their insight/wisdom. One thing I've learned from many leadership classes is that sometimes other people's experiences can be just as helpful as experiencing things yourself. Never discount what anyone has to share, even if their position isn't what you're aiming for. Their mistakes and successes can be just as insightful for yourself as they were for them.

The All-Hands meeting was also quite relieving, as we heard from professionals about their paths to success in the fields they landed in. They discussed that your most important weapon is your drive and the effort you put into your work. Additionally, they discussed that you may become overwhelmed at work, but your best tool to tackle projects is to break your work down into smaller increments, scheduling yourself checkpoints to complete your work by. It was inspiring to hear the processes and successes that our guests had to share. As someone who is both nervous and excited to enter the full-time work force, it was relieving to hear about how organic the process can be. They did a great job at making business marketing sound a lot more "human" to someone who is trying to break into the industry.
