My Life as an Intern

My experience as an intern with Cox Events Group and Cox Media Group has been filled with nothing but positive moments since I got here. Every time I come in, no matter how small, I learn a little something about what goes on behind the doors of an events and media company. From helping out with the logistics of an event, manning radio remotes in the field, working with the boards to produce radio shows, to even to sending out t-shirt promo items to contest winners, it’s always an eye opening experience. And that is extremely rewarding in its own right. Although the knowledge that I’ve gained through my time with the company has been invaluable, what has kept me going are the people that I get to work with. Everyone has a strong, upbeat attitude about getting work done, while still maintaining a fun and composed atmosphere. Never have I felt out of place or scared to ask a question. Instead, I’ve always looked for more to do, more to help out; something more for me to learn. Overall, I’m extremely grateful to be a part of the team and look forward to each and every working hour.

The Internship

The Internship

By: Jennelle Mendes When I first applied for an internship with Cox Events Group, I had no clue what I would be getting myself into. When Natasha told me in my interview that I may be moving porta-potties, I thought she was joking…turns out she wasn’t.  She wasn’t kidding about producing amazing events for crowds of over 500 people either.  Or about driving various celebrities and bands around from time to time. Or about making sure their Publix deli platter is in their trailer when it needs to be.  What she didn’t mention however, is that I would be working with an amazing group of hard working, fun and talented individuals that I could learn a lot and grow from. When my internship in spring 2015 ended, I was genuinely sad. I felt like there was so much more I wanted to accomplish in my role and I had only scratched the surface.  I regretted not taking advantage of all the opportunities that Cox has to offer.  I wanted to gain more Photoshop skills, study how a sound board operates, and learn more about digital media.  All of these things they encourage you to do during your internship along with plenty more.  My problem though, was that I was too shy and scared to step out of my comfort zone. When I got offered to come back the following year and intern with Cox Events Group for summer 2016, I leaped at the opportunity to be back with the company and team I had learned to love and appreciate!  It’s time to step out of my box.  This time...
