“Life As An Intern”
Truthfully, I have no idea what is in stored for me here at JGI and working with The MESH, but whatever it is, I am looking forward being able to learn a large amount and being using what I learn in what ever job I obtain after graduation. From what I know and some of the research I have done to understand Jackson Group Interactive, I see that the business deals with a lot and it is NEVER a dull moment. They give businesses the opportunity to come up with creative concepts on videography and other creative aspects. Also, they have their very own podcast network, The MESH, which informs listeners on various topics, from sport championships and tournaments to what is the best movie to watch in theaters.
Before I keep going on and on, I must introduce myself (how rude of me not to do so). I am Darren Roseboro, a senior at Lenoir Rhyne University (okay, a 5th year senior, but it’ll all be worth it in the end). My major is Converging and Interactive Media and minor in Visual Arts. When it comes to my major, I have had in-class experience in just about everything within the Communications department. Media Writing, Film & Production, Organizational Communications, etc. and I have enjoyed each and every moment. I have always been the type of person to be active and learn different aspects within my major because, even outside of the classroom, I am a student. I try to get involve in community service, nonprofit organizations and extra curricular activities, so I love to stay busy. I am originally from Winston-Salem, North Carolina and a random fact about me is that I LOVE FOOD!!! Lol.
My expectations for me being at JGI and working with The MESH are pretty simple, I want to be open and learn all I can with and about the company. I want to be able to do my best with everything that is handed to me and everything I will be involved in. Lastly, I want to be able to cherish this experience and have a great time doing it. Earlier, when meeting everyone that works for the company, I realized that Mary-Margaret and I have a few things in common with our major and academic track. We both started out as art majors, but switched into Communications and I desire to become a social media marketer for a company, as well as an event coordinator for what ever company I work for. Throughout my up and coming experience here, I am looking forward to doing my best and making sure that I am just open to trying new things and learning all I can about JGI and The MESH. I definitely know that my skills will improve and I am hoping to learn new techniques on social media marketing!
I’ll try to update my blog when I can. Another intern I will be working with, Shayna Smith (who is really fantastic with videography and editing work!) will be working with me here too. We will definitely have some future blogs throughout our experience.
Well, let the journey begin!
That’s a rap, much love,
