Ever wondered what it was like to work for a tech company? Here’s a perspective from an entry-level/intern position at ten24 Digital Solutions!
Hi I’m Sam, a rising senior in uni! Throughout the past ~2 months I’ve been working at a company downtown and brought my camera to work one day to vlog what it’s like.
I truly appreciate how welcoming everyone at ten24 was, it makes it hard for me to believe I’ve only been a part of the team for two months so far! I didn’t even know this was possible but my love for technology grew even more through learning to use different software tools that I wouldn’t have known existed until now.
This is the 1st video of my internship series, feel free to stay tuned for more including ‘what’s in my bag’ and internship advice.
Shout out to Nina for helping me film that ending and eventually climbing into the backseat for a better shot haha!
Side note; working here has it’s perks like being in super-walking distance to city events and local coffee shops, lunch spots, and more!
What is Enactus you say? Maybe I’ve never posted something to briefly explain it but I’ll do so now! But first, feel free to check out my vlog I just uploaded of the National Exposition in late May:
Honestly, Enactus is such a broad program (a global one) and it stands for ENtrepreneurial ACTion US. At my university, we have several projects which cover more than six of the United Nation’s 17 Global Goals.
Our projects range from teaching financial literacy to men recovering from opioid addiction to implementing pro-inclusion “Buddy Benches” at 33 of our city’s public elementary schools.
This year, my role as Director of Technology on the E-Board consisted of attending our project events and capturing photos and filming videos then editing them all together to help create our 17-minute visual presentation that goes along with the speech.
The United States’ Enactus Competition process starts with teams competing in their (or other) regions depending on which location they choose and then if they move on from the top tier of their league(s), they compete again at the national level in Kansas City, MO. The panel of judges consists of Fortune 500 company executives or their representatives and the criteria includes project sustainability, how well resources were used, presentation, and a question-and-answer round.
We’re so much more than this little explanation but there is not enough time in the world to cover what Enactus is so if you have any questions, please feel free to ask me anything!
I’m so grateful to have experienced the Enactus National Exposition with my team once again this year and I’m hoping to continue doing so over time!
Your girl is here to help you destress on top of this hectic semester she’s been going through. I’ve always wanted to start making calmer and more productive videos so here’s my first take on it.
Put your contact info in ASAP, if you ever lose your planner aka your life, wouldn’t you want someone to let you know they’ve found it?
Create designated “planning” time, like Sunday mornings to relax and prepare for the upcoming week.
Get a master list of all the events/exams/projects/etc that you have to take on. Or you can just gather all of your syllabuses together.
INVEST IN STICKERS. Or at least colored pens and markers. I swear they’ll make becoming productive more enjoyable. And I mean, the more you spend money on something, the more you’ll feel the need to get use out of it, right?
