My Final Day As A LevelTen Intern

My Final Day As A LevelTen Intern

medium_default_0.jpg Well, this is my final blog entry here at LevelTen and I really enjoyed my time here as a social media intern. Working here was a great experience and it really encouraged me to further study Internet marketing and social media for business applications and communications. The team here is great, they made me feel welcomed and my intern supervisor, Colin Alsheimer, mentored me about Internet marketing from SEO to keyword targeting, something I never would've gotten in my current college classes. I also had a better understanding of how CMS site building works, particularly the Drupal platform that LevelTen uses to develop websites for their clients. Unfortunately, I didn't have the time to develop my own website as part of my intern project, but that's okay, there will be training seminars that I can sign up for down the road, but it made me realized how easy site building is using a CMS platform. All companies, whether big or small, definitely need to implement one to better control and edit their content and to optimize SEO. I think the best experienced that I have ever gotten out of LevelTen that I thought was very exciting to do was Colin handing me the responsibility of managing LevelTen's social media. At last, I can finally put everything that I studied and practiced into a real life business application. Not only did I have the opportunity of twittering and retwittering information that dealt with what LevelTen does, which is Internet marketing and CMS site building, but I also managed both their Linkedin and Facebook accounts. By engaging the audience through interesting news topics and professional questions, I was able to increase LevelTen's Facebook fans and Linkedin group members in just a couple of weeks. LevelTen's Facebook originally had 116 fans and I managed to increase it to 128 fans. LevelTens's Linkedin group members started out at 100 and I was able to increase it to 127. This was definitely a great experience that ended in positive results. I really appreciate the LevelTen team in selecting me as their social media intern and I really encourage all college students to be proactive and find that internship that best fits them and their career goals. Absolutely take advantage of social media such as Twitter, Facebook, and Linkedin to find professionals who are willing to help you because that's what I did and I was able to get the position. When I move on to my next internship, I will definitely continue attending seminars and meetings dealing with social media and meet new people in the industry on internet marketing and communications, because it's all about networking and today's technology makes it a whole lot easier.
