Internship Experience

(April 17, 2014) – 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.

Skillman Video Group Intern

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 internships where you file paperwork and get people coffee. I was so wrong!

Since day one, Christina has put me to work. I started right away with 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 has 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, my advice is to do anything possible to get the position. You will not regret it.
