A Day in the Life of a BCV Intern

By August 6, 2018 No Comments

This summer, we welcomed 16 interns to BCV. With roles ranging from client services to monitoring to design, each intern was able to work on different projects and develop skills specific to their department. Here is a recap of what some of our interns did this summer and how they liked working at BCV!

 

Krista: Social Media Intern

Q: What does a typical day look like for you?

A: On a typical day at BCV I come in and finish whatever work I had left over from the day before and then meet with my team to see what work they need to be done. My overall day is spent on social media and working within BCV’s proprietary tool to plan content for the month ahead.

Q: What are some of the projects you’ve worked on as an intern?

A: Since working at BCV, I have had the opportunity to work on multiple projects and really learn a lot about what goes into all aspects of social media management. I have been responsible for pulling User Generated Content (UGC), developing client content calendars, inputting content into BCV’s tool, uploading content to social media channels, and even was able to join my team on a property event and content refresh visit, where we captured new photos of our client hotel.

Q: What is your favorite project you worked on?

A: My favorite project that I had the pleasure of helping with was the content refresh. It was cool to actually be at one of the properties that I have been working with.

Q: How would you describe BCV?

A: I would describe BCV as a welcoming and casual work environment. Everyone that I have worked with has treated me as an equal and has taken the time to make sure that I was comfortable here and with what I was doing.

Q: What is your favorite part of interning at BCV?

A: My favorite part of working at BCV has been the people that I have met. I’ve enjoyed getting to know the employees and the interns as well. I have made some friends that I know I will keep in touch with down the road and throughout my career.

Q: What is your biggest take away from the internship?

A: During this internship, I have been reassured that this is the career path that I want to take. I’ve enjoyed all of the experience and advice that I have been given and my time here has made me excited for my future career!

 

Britni: Marketing Intern

Q: What does a typical day look like for you?

A: On a typical day at BCV, I’ll come into the office and catch up on any messages I missed or any work that needs to be finished. While working on my projects, I have some quick meetings throughout the day to film a Boomerang for the intern and BCV Instagram stories.

Q: What are some of the projects you’ve worked on as an intern?

A: This summer I’ve gained a lot of experience working on various projects, including developing a content calendar for the BCV social media channels, compiling case studies about a variety of different social media campaigns, and highlighting our summer interns on BCV’s Instagram Stories.

Q: What is your favorite project you worked on?

A: My favorite project has been the intern highlight Instagram stories because it gave me the chance to get to meet and learn more about the people I was working with. It was really nice to be able to get to meet all my fellow interns and learn things about them that I otherwise would not have.

Q: How would you describe BCV?

A: The office has a very easygoing atmosphere, so it was a comfortable environment to work in and initially come into. Everyone that works at BCV is extremely welcoming and friendly.

Q: What is your favorite part of interning at BCV?

A: Getting to know everyone that works here. There’s so many different people working here and getting the chance to know them better was a really cool experience. I also loved all the office dogs that would come in some days!

Q: What is your biggest take away from the internship?

A: That I was able to experience what marketing really is. It was beneficial to be able to have the hands-on experience of marketing rather than just learning about it in the classroom. I really enjoyed applying knowledge of marketing I previously had but also learning new skills and information about the industry. 

 

Sam: Design Intern

Q: What does a typical day look like for you?

A: I usually get into the office and begin working independently on projects I am given. Graphic design can be very “in the zone” type of work, so headphones are usually plugged in. But of course, I participate in meetings for the projects I take on. Throughout the day, I’m also trying to learn things because while I came to this internship well-versed in programs, I’m always being introduced to new things.

Q: What are some of the projects you’ve worked on as an intern?

A: I’ve done work for The Otesaga Resort Hotel for their holiday posts and I just finished a video-based project for the Brooklyn Bridge Marriott Hotel, which was really entertaining. Right now I’m working on my summer project which is a mock campaign in which I had the opportunity to choose a brand and work with a copywriter to develop. I’m really excited to see the outcome!

Q: What is your favorite project that you worked on?

A: Probably working on the video content. It’s always really fulfilling to see something move with life after hours of pressing buttons and tweaking controls. And in the video campaign for the Marriott, I had the opportunity to also give my input in meetings.

Q: How would you describe BCV?

A: BCV is a great place to intern, especially if you are looking for some hands-on experience in this field, full of great people who are working at the newest areas of the industry.

Q: What is your favorite part of interning at BCV?

A: Can I say free donuts? I’m kidding – the community is wonderful and encouraging!

Q: What is your biggest take away from the internship?

A: Trusting in my ability to create things, and not being afraid to ask coworkers and uppers for help.

 

Our interns were able to participate in various activities during their time here, including lunch sessions to learn about different aspects of the industry, and could always be seen together working or going for coffee. Even though we’ve shared just a glimpse of what our interns did this summer, we are happy that they gained a lot of experience and enjoyed working at BCV. We’re excited to see the things they’ll do in the future!
