Having recently wrapped up my bachelor’s degree at the University of Colorado at Boulder, and knowing that “you don’t build websites with LEGOs,” I can say that I have learned more practical skills in two weeks at COHN than I did in four years at school.
Being an intern at COHN is an opportunity anybody would be lucky to have…but being an intern on the digital team is an experience like no other. There is a learning experience around every corner, and because the world of digital is ever changing, I know that there will always be a new skill for me to learn down the road.
The agency is filled with welcoming people, knowledge mavens, and three to five dogs on any typical day. With everyone ready to help, it’s impossible not to learn something new every day.
To make my blog stand out among other “intern experience” blogs, I thought I would try my hand at an acrostic poem to describe what COHN is all about:
Cohn is a great place to develop your skills at any level
Organizing your day is the key to getting all of your work done
Having people to ask for help, and dogs to pet
New and exciting projects always come your way
Make friends with the team
Ask if you don’t know
Risk it for the biscuit
Kind and respectful
Eat whatever is in the kitchen fast
Turn challenges into skills
Ignite your inner COHNian spirit
Never pass up a learning opportunity
Great work takes time
With my career as a poet well on its way, I’ll finish up this post by saying that I’m happy to join the team, and I’m excited to continue to learn and grow at COHN!
