The 'Buzz' About Internships11.20.2011Remember how I said I was looking for an internship for next semester? Guess who secured one
this girl! Yes. You are reading the blog of Buzznets newest online intern for Spring 2012. If youve been following me for some time now, youll recognize the name Buzznet, because Im an occasional blogger and two-time event volunteer for them. Hint: Search back to my posts about Lollapalooza. Anyway, Im sure youre wondering how I got this sweet gig and what exactly Ill be doing. Allow me to explain.
Im going to start off by saying I love the 21st century and technology. Next, I kind of like Twitter. Finally, I got this internship by tweeting @breesays, the music editor at Buzznet, asking if she needed an intern. I met Bree a few years ago at the Bamboozle Roadshow and worked the Buzznet photobooth, so I was hoping she remembered me from that as well as my collaboration with my friend Kayla at Lolla. Turns out she did need an intern and proceeded to @reply me until I e-mailed her officially.
Im just going to re-emphasize the fact that I got this internship by tweeting...and regular networking. But social networkingdont underestimate it. Not that I recommend tweeting at a Fortune 500 company looking for a job. But in the media industry I was willing to take a chance that might work out
and it did!
Basically I get to write stories, help with band features, and work on online marketing
aka getting the awesome updates out for everyone to see! This means that Ill probably send all this cool info your way when I upload something new, so get prepped for music/pop-culture awesomeness. And the best part of this deal, I can do everything from my bed while wearing pjs and drinking coffee. Literally, its a virtual internship and all my work is online so I dont even have to leave my house.
Want to follow my Buzznet adventures? Look me up at http://dramaticasthethunder.buzznet.com/user/ and click around the rest of the site while youre at it. Ill most likely be uploading on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays next semester. Coolest job ever? Basically. Advice? If you want something, dont be afraid to ask. Sometimes thats all it takes.
