The Intern Diaries: Week 1
Hi! I’m Antonia, one of the summer interns at Yummie. I’m a rising Senior at Marist College majoring in Fashion Merchandising and I also have a minor in Photography.
During the next couple of weeks, I’ll be keeping an intern diary to share my daily tasks and projects with you, and give you the inside scoop on all things Yummie!
I’m interning with the Marketing team which consists of the VP of Marketing and E-Comm, the PR and Content Manager, the Senior Graphic Design Manager, and the Graphic Design and Content Coordinator. Being able to work with Yummie is such an amazing opportunity for me because the Yummie message is that women should be able to look good while feeling comfortable and confident, and that’s basically my life goal. Although I’ve only been interning for two weeks, I know I’ll learn so much from the people I’m working with.
Here at Yummie, every day is a different challenge. Getting started here and learning the ropes put me to the test, but I think I’ve finally gotten the hang of things! I started exactly a week before the new 6-in-1 Shaping Tank was released (which was super exciting I might add). During the week, I sent out the 6-in-1 to so many influencers and bloggers and attended a photoshoot. I was even able to try on the tank!
My favorite projects so far have definitely been taking behind the scenes photos and filming an Instagram and Facebook live about the 6-in-1. Even though I’m behind the scenes, I’ve taken in so much from these two experiences. Being here while the marketing team prepped for the release was super exciting to be a part of.
I got a sneak peek of what really goes into a brands social media platform, something I’m hoping to pursue after I graduate school. These next few weeks will be packed with fun new experiences for me and I can’t wait to share them here. Next up is a lifestyle photoshoot-- stay tuned!
