As a college student, it’s easy to constantly feel like life is at a crossroads. It’s like riding a see-saw back and forth between being a kid and an adult.
Every day looks different as you gear up to leave undergrad and enter the “real world.” But every day, I show up to my internship at LV Collective feeling like my knowledge, skills and judgment are trusted.
As a rising senior at the University of Texas, I can say some of the highlights of my college career (and the moments I’ve felt most prepared for adult life) have been in my time at LV.
LV interns agree that we don’t just sit at a desk and mindlessly check off an arbitrary to-do list. One day I’m posing for a lifestyle photoshoot, the next I’m brainstorming blog posts for a new market, and later that afternoon I’m drafting a newsletter that will be read by hundreds.
With each task, we’re entrusted to play to our strengths, exercise our creativity, and build on our skills. Interns play a meaningful role in every project at LV, and the freedom we’re given along the way works wonders for our personal and professional development.
After completing two semesters as a Digital Marketing Intern, I’ve had countless opportunities to collaborate with talented people on both the marketing team and in other departments.
One of my favorite projects was an entirely intern-led production where we created a promotional video for Sweetwater, one of LV’s new student housing developments in Gainesville, Florida.
