A Day In The Life Of A Richter7 Intern

June 24th, 2010

We have some great interns working with us this summers in various departments. We’ve asked them to provide some insight into Richter7 culture : What have they encountered that they didn’t expect? What are they gaining from the experience? How weird are we all, really? Stay tuned for regular updates from our summer interns.

Introducing: KELLEN KNOWLES, Public Relations Intern

Life as an intern at Richter7 is nothing like what I had previously imagined.  It’s a fast paced and detail oriented industry.  The transition has been relatively speed bump free and I’m starting to find my niche.  This is largely due to the fantastic PR team at Richter7.  They’ve made me feel like a part of the team since day one.   I’m expected to contribute to projects and they value my input as well.

My days are filled with “real PR work.”  I’ve gained valuable hands-on experience over the past month, reaffirming why I chose PR as a career path.  One instance in particular was the June Dairy Month media tour.  I accompanied Amanda Sanchez and the Utah Dairy Ambassadors to several radio morning shows, followed by an appearance on KSL Studio 5.  Later that day, we made a visit to Shriners Hospital to distribute ice cream to patients and staff.  The hospital visit is by far the highlight of the summer thus far.  It was a great experience to take a few hours and brighten the days of those who are living with unfortunate health restrictions.

One thing I have come to appreciate is the diversity in my daily work.  I’m never doing the same thing two days in a row.  I am able to work out of the office, as with the dairy tour, or combine heads with talented individuals to better serve our clients at Richter7 headquarters.  I look forward to many more opportunities like these before my internship comes to a close.
