In my senior year of college I started looking for internships around Boston that could give me experience in not just marketing but also in video marketing. At my college, I am very connected with the office of marketing and communication, so that is where I started asking if anyone in the office knew of places I could intern. The first person that was mentioned was Christina Skillman. One of the associates in the office was one of Christina’s first interns. Once she connected me with Christina I was asked to go in for an interview and that is when my journey began.
When I came in to Skillman Video Group I had no idea what to expect. In the back of my mind I thought it would be one of those internship that you file paperwork and get people coffee. I was so wrong! Since day one, Christina has put me to work. I started right away on writing blog posts, and learning how they help with organic SEO. This was just one part of my Internship. I was also able to go on video shoots and assist her professional videographers. As my time continued, I was able to start working on Client work by creating motion graphics. I never thought I would be able to do that, but Christina never stopped believing in me.
This internship has definitely been an experience that I am so grateful I had. Since day one, Christina constantly said she wants me to get as much as I can out of this internship, and I did. If you are interested in becoming an intern at Skillman Video Group LLC, my advice is to do anything possible to get the position. You will not regret it.
