I have completed two more key internships with influential companies; United Nations Foundation and Discovery Communications. My experience with these global organizations has given me insight of what it takes to be part of a successful digital media team.
United Nations Foundation, supports the UN and strengthens US-UN relations through public education, advocacy, and outreach. By working in their digital media department I gained experience in a fast-paced work environment which strengthened my organizational skills and ability to manage several tasks simultaneously. I had the opportunity to work with the UNA-USA division on the launch of GenUN; A national initiative of UNA-USA to engage and energize young supporters around UN issues. As an action-oriented platform, GenUN provides a vehicle for young people to get involved in global issues. We were in charge of re-branding the UN website, creating a new blog and social media outlets and engaging young influentials. I gained knowledge in the field of social media and how to create and execute strategies to help launch compelling campaigns that generated conversation and engagement across various social and digital platforms.
Discovery Communications a global mass media and entertainment company. During my internship in their affiliate marketing department, I was in charge of multiple projects focused on millennial social media, digital and consumer trends and the changing media landscape. I gave presentations of my ideas to large groups of upper management and sales staff, providing them information on how to expanded and develop a stronger social media presence for their various networks within Discovery. I also I supported event promotion surrounding key events and premiers such as Shark Week and the John Hendricks Innovation Awards. During the Innovation awards I was part of a necessary team that assisted with coordination, promotion and crowd excitement. My attention to detail and the ability to juggle multiple projects at once allowed me to succeed under pressure.
