My internship with She’s Social: Week 15: Taking continuing educational classes

 

Hi Blog world,

This week was an enjoyable one because I got to learn about sales and marketing by listening to Zig Ziglar. I now have a basic understanding of how the world of marketing and sales work.

Another motivational speaker I listened to this week was Les Brown. I liked his speeches because he spoke about letting the past go, and that we need to do this to set clearer goals for the future; I personally, struggle with letting the past go. In fact, many of my family and friends say I live in the past. I’m neither here in the present nor am I setting goals for the future.  This made me sit down with a notebook and think.

What impressed me and helped me the most was hearing a lecture on how to set goals, having good leadership skills, and how to determine personal success.

I feel that I now have a clearer understand of what I want to achieve for the next few months to a few years down the road. It’s going to take a lot of hard work; however I’ll get there.

My internship with She’s Social: Week 14: Finding continuing educational classes

Hi Blog world,

This week I learned about what kinds of continuing educational classes and workshops that are available in our community.

Some of these classes talked about business and how to start your own business other classes were strictly for learning how to become a better writer.

I found two business workshops that looked good; unfortunately, my supervisor and I were unable to attend. I will continue to look for other workshops that can be taken at another time or maybe even through the computer.

Even though, I was not able to attend any continuing educational classes face to face, I did find some classes through www.Alison.com. I have been enjoying the classes I have been taking.  So far I have taken classes in: social media, and some basic business classes. So far the classes that have to deal with social media has been my favorite. This is because I like the diversity that social media brings.

My goal is to continue taking classes to improve any area that I feel will help me reach my goal of being the best writer I can be!

My internship with She’s Social: Week 13:Long Labor Day Weekend

Hi Blog world,

First, I hope everyone had a fun and long holiday weekend. I enjoyed my day off by taking a walk, reading for my book club, and I did some journal writing.

This week, I worked on finding more continuing educational classes, to help improve and grow my skills. Finding classes is an ongoing process. I hope I can find more classes to take in the future. I like learning new things, and using those skills to help me grow in my career.

My main task for this week was to work on posting an event on social media that is coming up this month. It was fun, and I like working on Facebook; I had to work hard on this assignment because I kept getting stuck with finding groups that we could follow. Thank goodness for help from my supervisor. She gave me ideas and tips to help me find a wider audience.

How do you guys use social media? What are some of your favorite groups or pages on Facebook? Tell me in the comments below.

My internship with She’s Social: Week 11/12: Clerical skills

Hi Blog world,

This week, I am going to combined two weeks of blogs into one.

Last week, I really enjoyed my work assignment-I got to choose music that was basic on a theme for an upcoming radio show. I enjoy music in general, so this assignment was right up my alley! The type of music I looked up where rap and R and B songs. Most people are surprised to learn that I like both rap and R and B. I generally listen to country, however I enjoy all different kinds of music.

I can’t wait to look up music for another show again. This helped me understand some of the basics of how a radio show is produced. Since, I got to look up the music, it helped me understand the research that I did for the show. The research I did for the show was interesting; I enjoy doing research and learning new things.

This week, I did some basic clerical work-sending out letters to local business for an upcoming event. This assignment helped me work on my basic research skills, since I have to look up their contact information.

My internship with She’s social:Week 9:Preparing to contact the media

Hi Blog world,

This week I have been working on gathering contact information so we can send out our press releases.

I am enjoying this project because I get to see all the different kinds of magazines that are out there. This has reminded me that there are several places to write for, and if I work hard I can live my dream of being a writer.

To be honest, I see myself as a successful writer, spending most of my days living a very busy life, and being  very independent.
