When internship project and work are in conflict

Fortunately, my company have a very well-constructed program for interns that involves on-boarding training, mentorship, lunch n learn and also an internship project.

You Won’t Be Told Everything You Have To Know

In the third week of my internship, I needed to travel for work, and that made me so excited. I was put in a team that will be traveling to another city and staying there in a hotel for the whole week. I was so happy that the company I work for valued the work…

Teamwork as a Key to Success

Interning at WGBH Digital is a unique experience with an interesting balance between solo contributions and team collaboration. As the saying goes, “there is no ‘i’ in team.” Every piece of work completed adds to the finished product, in one way or another.

How Google Docs Saved Me This Summer

If there was no Google Docs, I wonder how my team at work and I would be able to complete our work efficiently and well. Of course, I am not saying that saying Google Docs is the final, say-all, end-all of word processors. There are definitely opportunities where Google Docs may present itself as the…

How to Succeed in an Ad Agency

Hi Everyone, This may be one of my last posts, but I may have a few more posts left in the tank–who knows? Because of this being one of my last posts as a guest blogger for CCD, I thought it was appropriate to end with a pretty long post that reflects on what I…
