From the start I was super excited to get a first-hand experience at Priscilla Costa Bridal. I liked knowing how small it was and how personal the brides’ and bridesmaids’ experiences were.
In the beginning, getting used to writing social media posts was a challenge since it was my first time writing about something other then myself. But after learning how to write from a different perspective, I really caught on and enjoyed creating Facebook posts. I loved creating photo collages and engaging with the community to make them want to follow PCB online and to come in a visit the atelier.
Of course, no internship comes without struggles or else it wouldn’t be a learning experience. At first I was in charge of the Instagram account, but after a few weeks we realized that my style of writing was not as effective as our other awesome social media intern, Erin. After switching around our responsibilities so I was working on Facebook and Twitter, everything was smooth sailing!
Along with learning about social media and how to engage the community through different media posts, I also enjoyed working with Priscilla herself and the other interns Sarah, Marissa and Erin. Priscilla was always encouraging and when I did make mistakes, she was always kind and understanding. She is so positive and such a genuinely good person.
Priscilla really cares so much about each and every client, which is my favorite part about working at PCB. From the beginning you can tell she puts 110% into each client and I love that I got to work for someone who is so passionate about their work and really cares.
I’m also glad that I got to work with another social media intern, Erin. Without her, running the social media networks would be a struggle to say the least. It was a lot more fun to work with another intern than by myself. Meeting Sarah and Marissa, the fashion design interns, was amazing too because I had the chance to meet and work with people my own age who were studying different things, but working in the same industry.
This experience was amazing and exciting to say the least. While it may sound that it was too good to be true, I promise I’m not sugar coating my experiences at PCB.
While I’m sad it is coming to an end soon, I can’t wait to come back and visit Priscilla as soon as next summer rolls around!
