Who: Leigh CollyerUniversity: The University of Texas at AustinHometown: MidlandMajor: Public RelationsInternship: Social Media Marketing Intern at Social FactorQ: What was the environment like there?A: The environment is very friendly, laid-back and collaborative. We all work in the same area and are constantly working together, bouncing off ideas and laughing.Q: What is something you learned?A: I have learned so much! Google Analytics, Spredfast, and Brandwatch just to name a few things. I also have become a better writer and learned how to take on a brand voice for each different client I am doing content for.Q: Is there anything you wish you had known before taking the internship?A: Not really. My classes at UT have done a great job at preparing me for my internships, and there is a ton of overlap between what I’m learning at school and what I am learning at my internship. My writing class and research class taught me many things that I use at Social Factor.Q: Do you have any tips for college students who are looking for internships/jobs?A: Keep applying! It can sometimes be frustrating when you don’t get a call back from a company you really liked, but internships are usually beneficial wherever you work. Get out of your comfort zone and try something new because you might end up liking it more! This is the time to explore and learn!
