I was placed at PhotoBook Magazine, an online magazine based in New York City that curates original, creative works reflecting the social conscience sweeping the fashion industry.
As a social media intern, I was responsible for managing the magazine's social media accounts, including Facebook, LinkedIn, and Pinterest. My duties included creating daily interactions on these platforms and preparing competitive presentations, strategic reports, and monthly analytics reports. I would later present these reports to the CEO/Editor-In-Chief of PhotoBook Magazine, Alison Hernon, every Monday during our weekly meetings.
How do you think this experience has impacted your career?
I believe this social media internship will significantly impact my career path as it served as a kickstart into the real fashion and editorial industry. It provided me with essential skills applicable in various settings while also imparting a deep understanding of working with social media in an editorial context.
