My internship with Epic Careering re-framed my future. I have new goals, new contacts, and new skills that melded with my previous knowledge in ways that continue to provide me with ideas and excitement.
Karen introduced me to her company in early June. When I found out that she crafted her company from the bottom up according to her interest in helping people in a way she knew how, I lit up. Immediately, I became fascinated by the idea of entrepreneurship. It has become a seed in my head that has been pleasantly haunting me as I start my senior year.
As the weeks went on, I learned about Karen’s suite of services and watched her processes of building a résumé from start to finish. I acquired many new skills not only by observing her, but by participating in the social media sites on behalf of Epic Careering. I learned how to use Hootsuite, search engine optimize, and spin articles among many other social media practices. Karen also let my creativity flourish in creating my own projects. One such project being that I created youtube playlists for motivation, doubt, success, leadership, and beginnings by compiling music videos, TED talks, and other inspirational content on youtube. My hope is that anyone who uses Epic Careering’s free resources on the web can view them and be inspired to action somehow in their lives.
As I take the first few steps into my last year at Ursinus College, I am grateful for my internship at Epic Careering. It taught me a lot about my own career goals. It made me realize that everything starts at a basic level and grows according to how you nurture it. That includes entities in the professional and personal realms. As I turn into the real world, I will try to nurture the entrepreneurial seed that Epic Careering put in my head as well as the professional relationships I made this summer. Here’s to the future!
