YOU: You are under-resourced and it would give you peace of mind to be in-action on a few projects. You need support. Free help is on its way.
YOU: You want to give back and give some young people the opportunity to learn from you and your organization. The experience you provide them might actually change their life trajectory. It did, mine.
How I Help You: I develop internship programs that give young people the experience of using their skills and interests to contribute to the organization. I find you a pool of awesome young people who are there to learn and help. The program tracks both the learning and contributions. And also tracks the organization's needs being met and exceeded.
WHY INTERNS? I created and implemented an internship program in my organization since it’s conception. #13 starts in the Spring. I love interns. Here’s probably why.
The summer of 1982, I was Radio/TV/Film major at Northwestern University, and did my first ever internship. In NYC! My 20+ years as a television commercial producer, began at Ogilvy & Mather, New York as an intern, assisting a Senior VP. Producer, who was producing million dollar commercials for American Express, Hallmark, Pepperidge Farm Cookies. (Yum! Great shoot to be at.) She is to this day, one of my dearest friends. I was lucky. I found a career I loved. At 27, I was the youngest VP that Ogilvy had ever had. So, having interns onboard is something I hold dear to my heart.
