    Hi, Lesley!

    I think this is great! I, too, was just offered an account coordinator position after my internship was up. I work at HMA Public Relations in Phoenix!

    I wholeheartedly agree with all of the points you made. An internship is more than a learning experience, it should also be viewed as a try out. As long as you put in the work and really invest yourself in the project at hand, this will go a long with your coworkers.

    I know that I asked a ton of questions – not at first but as time progressed. It took me a little bit to understand that questions are perceived as a good thing, especially in this industry. After realizing that, it really helped me to gather vital information about the company and its clients.

    Congratulations and thank you for posting this. I think it’s brilliant. Good luck in the future!
