This was a chaotic week from me with Dr. Gibson. This week I took pictures for the public speaking book while recovering from my wisdom tooth form being pulled. I also got a lot of criticism of my work this week.

The chaos started when I get an email form Dr. Gibson telling me that they need the cover photo for their book for the book by Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. So, as a favor I had to ask Chris for his professional camera and that was not fun, but none the less I got the camera and I took my shots that Thursday. Once I got the shots on Friday I started at 8:00 in the morning to edit the photos. The hardest thing that I had to do was completely move someone to a whole new location and make him look like he belongs there. I finished in time and I went to meet with Dr. Gibson and Dr. Scott and it went ok.

Dr. Gibson was very picky about what she wanted though there was not a lot of direction in the meeting the week before. Dr. Gibson wanted more diversity and more people but I am afraid that would be much. Dr. Scott however, was very supportive of my idea and the photos that I edited and understanding. The end result was I need to take more pictures that next Monday.  Once the meeting was over I went straight to NPACE and continued to edit. I was feeling a little down about the meeting because I felt like I nailed it but I guess, I didn’t.

The same day Dr. Gibson asked me to take pictures for Lamda Phi Eta Induction Ceremony, a fraternity for communication students. I did not want to go but I knew I had to because no one else was going to be able to come to campus on a Saturday at 12:30pm-1:30pm. So, I got a camera form NPACE and on Saturday I went to the Induction Ceremony. It was nice and I got a lot of nice pictures of students with their families celebrating their induction achievement.

I learned this week that when all of the odds are against you, you need to keep pushing and don’t give up. You might take a step back and revaluate things but don’t stop. I also learned that I am capable and competent. I got this.

This week I actually started filming! It was huge relief to get this project started because this semester is literally flying by! On Monday morning, I interviewed Melissa Young and Tammy Baxter. Melissa is the assistant director at A.C.E so her questions were a little different from Tammy’s. Then, on Wednesday I interviewed academic advisors Kelly Koch and Alisha Miles. It also happened to my first-time meeting Alisha Miles. She works with BOOST program. BOOST is an initiative that provides access to quality health care for children of college students. We also agreed that I would do graphic work for her program and maybe even film a short segment for social media.

Since most of my time was spent filming on Monday and Wednesday, I spent majority of Friday working on the revamp of the SIP Grant Letter. Christopher Holloway noticed that students weren’t taking the time to completely read through the letter so the both of us decided that an infographic of some sort might work better. But after taking the time to read the email, I decided that an infographic was not the best decision for this specific information. So, I kind of created a mix between a flyer and an infographic. Next week, I’m hoping to start editing my video project and begin working with the Dual Enrollment advisor, Jay Davis.

Over the past week at ACE, I’ve been planning for the “what is ACE” video and taking on few more projects for programs within ACE. On Friday, I got the chance to meet with Christopher Holloway. He works with at risk youth and requested I make a few things for his program. We agreed on creating an infographic that will replace lengthy, yet important emails students aren’t reading and postcards in order to remind students of missed appointments and upcoming appointments. I was also asked to film a financial aid literacy workshop that will later be used for students who were not able to attend it.

Earlier in the week, I created a google doc for advisors to sign up for interviews for the video but of course only a few advisors signed up. So, I took the time to go around the office and ask advisors face to face to be in the video or recommend a student to be on camera. Many of them didn’t want to be on camera and couldn’t recommend a student to be interviewed. So, I’m back at square one. There’s only a little over a month left in this semester and I don’t want to film this at the last minute. Hopefully I’m able to work this out.

Because social media is such a popular platform, it is important to understand and know how to make mobile ads. With this in mind, I created my first mobile ad. Unlike past my past projects, this was a completely different type of advertising method. Rather than making logos, labels, and social media plans, I had to create an ad that promoted the company as a whole and make it enticing enough for customers to click on. My client sells purses and she wanted me to advertise her new spring line. Based on her company’s needs, I created a mobile ad that showcased a few purses and added a link that said “Shop Now.” By doing so, it shows the customers the types of purses available, but to see the rest of the collection and purchase them, the customer would have to visit the actual website.

These are some key points I learned this week. Mobile ads are similar to flyers, but on a digital platform. A difference between printed flyers and mobile ads are the information on it. Flyers usually have more in depth information whereas mobile ads are shorter. So if customers want more information on the company then they would have to click on the ad and the ad would take them straight to the website. Overall, it is importance to know the difference and create the proper advertising methods as requested because I was originally trying to make it more like a flyer.

Several agents contacted me this week via our Marketing email asking for me to make them flyers. There are different types of flyers I can make. I can make open house, coming soon, or new listing flyers. This week I made two different “coming soon” flyers for an agent here at the office. It was honestly really cool seeing the different things you could do when making a flyer. I made my flyer through a website called Canva.com. It has so many different options to choose from! As I was creating the flyer, I was thinking of how much I actually enjoyed doing stuff like that. I am looking forward to doing more before the semester ends!

This experience can help prepare me for the real world by giving me Marketing/PR assistant’s point of view on how to tackle certain assignments. It will give me a better outlook on what a Marketing/PR assistant does on a daily. It will also help me to clearly analyze every project I do and make sure that it’s within the companies/agents guidelines.

My overall internship perspective is that I am excited for my future in Marketing/PR. I am grateful for this internship in that it will somewhat prepare me for the real world and the things I will have to face in the workplace. It allows me to be comfortable with the type of work setting/workload I will be given in the near future.

 

Above are pictures of the two different flyers I made for an agent.

The office was particularly slow this week. I didn’t have many agents come and ask for my assistance. My other co-workers and I are planning out videos that our boss wants us to do with some of the agents/workers there. These videos are short tutorials that cover subjects like, earnest money, yard signs, USAA/Navy Federal clients, referral fees, etc.

Pezold Management and Community Affairs

                  This week was spent differently from the others so far. I was able to join the person I am interning with at a meeting in downtown Columbus. The meeting was for YP which is Young Professionals- their goal is to fill the area with gifted young professionals that will help continue a great community. Cassie Myers, the person I am interning under, is the secretary for this organization. Her membership is covered and supported by Pezold Management. I was able to see what she does through Pezold Management with this organization by going to this meeting. I find that this is yet another way Pezold Management is looking to be close to the community by sending out their communication specialist to be involved in community affairs. In this meeting, we discussed upcoming service projects, for example, Clean up Midtown. We also discussed better opportunities for communication internally and externally. This opportunity taught me the role of a communication professional in a business meeting setting and what the role is.

The meeting this week inspired me to get involved with an organization like YP. This internship has already showed me many things, but now I am seeing how Cassie is able to network. YP is full of figureheads from other large companies in the area such as Georgia Power and News Leader 9. I am hoping to build these relationships now so that I may have success in promoting my future company.
