As I am writing this towards the end of my internship at RyTech, I can truly see the value and the insight I have received during my time. I also noticed how it was sad asking myself, “where did the time go?” But on the bright side, it made me realize how much I enjoyed this part of my journey. The experience I acquired is invaluable. I was finally able to take my involvement in the classroom into a real professional business setting. I have also evolved my skills through the projects I worked on. I’m proud to say that my content editing techniques through Photoshop and the video editing software Final Cut Pro have seen a tremendous improvement. Some say I have become a Final Cut Pro “Pro”. While working on these projects, I implemented planning as part of the process and have improved my project skills. My projects involved a lot of creativity because they just started out as ideas. I was able to convert the ideas from concepts to finished products through planning and organization.
I would highly recommend getting a summer internship to all students and even recent graduates. It allows you to learn, grow and get experience in real world situations. It also helps you decide what path you want to follow. It looks great for colleges and on beginner resumes (like mine) As a result, you will have work samples for your portfolio. But, the best reason to get a summer internship is that you will gain from the network of contacts you make, and hey, you also get a foot in the door at your company for future job opportunities.
