Design//Summer 2015

What did you do after your internship?

I switched gears back to being a student at Union University.

 

What are you doing now? What's a day in the life?

I'm currently finishing my Senior year with a degree in Digital Media Studies.

 

Did redpepper help in your personal growth (during or after your internship)? How so?

Absolutely, the internship at rp greatly influenced my vision for the future. I now have a much clearer understanding of how a creative agency works on a daily basis.

 

Did you learn anything at rp that you've applied to your career path(s)? Anything surprising or unexpected?

More than anything it affirmed that I was studying and practicing skills that I could use in a professional setting.

 

What things do you miss most about redpepper?

The genuine trust and teamwork I saw between coworkers who were working on a project together. That and free beer.

 

If you could go back in time, would you intern all over again? What would you do differently?

I would be more intentional about spending time with the employees. Getting to know the people I worked with was awesome, but I wish I'd gone out of my way to get to know people in every department.

 

Any advice for current and/or potential interns to get the full experience?

Work your butt off.
