It's been pretty hectic. When I first looked at what I wanted to do for my internship, I thought that programming was going to be my expertise. However, when I arrived at the company, and I talked to all of the resident programmers, I knew I was out of my depth. I guess I expected it a bit, that I wouldn't really be able to contribute to the programming side of things. After hanging out with my mentor for a day though, I had a good idea of what I could do to help. My mentor is the Vice-president of Sales, in a department of two, so he knows a pretty good deal about sales and marketing. I took one look at all the problems they were having, and I suggested that I could make advertisements. Mike was pretty happy with that idea, and my first draft or two looked pretty good. I don't know if they were as good as some of the ones the web-designer made, but I liked them, and so did my mentor, Mike. I started in on making the banners and other ads, and Mike gave me an account to an video tutorial website. I completed the Google Adwords training and browsed some of the cool Photoshop and Logo Design tutorials. I was pretty happy with the progress so far, and I think the skills I have learned can already be applied to other aspects of my life.
