This is part of a series where we ask Grady College students to describe their summer internship experience.

Briefly describe your internship and responsibilities.

As a social media intern at Green Olive Media, I help run the various social media accounts for Green Olive’s clients. My responsibilities include posting, community engagement, and coming up with new ideas to ensure the accounts are cohesive with the brand voice and are staying on top of trends.

What’s the most challenging part of this position?

The most challenging part of this position is that social media is always changing, and there are always new trends to stay on top of. There is never a dead season for social media, and there is always a need for new content.

What has been your favorite part about your internship so far?

My favorite part of my internship so far has been working with the Green Olive team. I have learned so much from them, and they are the nicest group of people. Many are UGA grads, so there is an extreme sense of community on this team, which I love!

How have the classes you’ve taken at Grady prepared you for this role?

Grady classes helped me prepare for this internship by teaching me about target audiences, brand voices and social media analytics – all of which are critical for successful social media engagement.

What advice would you give to students who are looking to pursue similar opportunities?

I would tell students who are looking to pursue similar opportunities to get involved. I found out about Green Olive through PRSSA! Whether it’s Ad Club, Talking Dog or Paw Print, Grady offers a ton of opportunities to gain experience and learn about summer internships.
