I generally had at least 3
spreadsheets open and a list of
people to try to sell booth space
Sometimes It’s the Dirty Work
One major lesson I have
learned while working at C3 is
that there is a lot of dirty
You have to keep your event
clean, you have to keep your
promotional items clean
looking and you must keep
your home base clean.

The best part about the blog is that it gave
me an initial opportunity to think about
the experience I was having at my
For example, there was my blog about the
Riversong School Fundraiser. My area did
not turn out as planned. I was so upset
about the whole thing, but the blog made
me realize that watching my part not turn

What I Read in
I really enjoyed reading the different blog
Having us all do the blog gave everyone a
chance to talk about what we were doing
(the good, the bad and the status updates)
but gave us all a chance to connect in a “we
are all in this together” kind of way.

What Did the Internship Teach Me?
This internship taught me a
lot, both about myself and about
my future plans.
The first thing I learned was how
important it is to have confidence
in what you are doing. In any field
where you take leadership in what
you do, you have to be able to
confidently say what needs to be
But with confidence you have to
own up to the mistakes you and
your company makes as well.

Confidence is Easy when you Cover the
The biggest example for this
was all of the design elements I
For example, the website.
The website was the
simple, most frustrating/time
consuming task I did. I was
constantly being told I was
doing it wrong, but then I found
creative ways to make it better.
But, when I was training the
other interns to use it I realized
how much I liked doing
it, because it was MY project.
It Taught Me to Let Things Go
This internship taught me that more
often than not you’re going to be
yelled at more than praised.
It is important to make people feel
that they are being listened to, but
not to let it get to you.
C3 not only gave me the opportunity
to learn this, but gave me the
support when I needed it.

It Taught Me to Take Risks
Taking risks often allows
you to have more
creativity in your
work, and it draws
attention to the way you
think. For me, it made the
job a lot more fun, and
brought its own
challenges for me to take

But Finally, It Helped Me Feel Ready
for a Full Time Job
I had the opportunity at the end
of my internship to visit an
advertising internship in
Portland, OR and talk to a few
people in Account Management.
I understood what they were
talking about, and when they
talked with me about what I had
done both agreed that I had
gotten the experience I needed
to do their job.
I am very thankful for this
