We are moving offices next week, so this week was focused on packing the office. Most of this time was spent packing things into boxes, but also organizing the boxes and where they should be placed in the storage unit. Next week, the office will be packed up and moved to a storage unit, while we will work from home until we find a new office. When I wasn’t busy packing, I worked on various projects, such as organizing teams for our golf outing or working on graphics for social media posts.
During my second week as an intern for the Ohio Pork Council, my duties were divided between communication activities and preparing for our event, Pork-a-Palooza. During the beginning of the week, I wrote a press release, edited Porkline content, and organized golf teams for our next event. Towards the end of the week, I was helping finalize things for Pork-a-Palooza, such as working on invites or setting up at the fairgrounds. Pork-a-Palooza was on Saturday, so I spent my day selling tickets and then tearing down the event.
This was my first week working as a Communication Intern for the Ohio Pork Council. This organization is funded through the Pork Checkoff and focuses on promoting and advocating for the pork industry. Throughout my time as an intern, I will be doing a variety of tasks, like writing press releases or magazine content, designing graphics, and serving as an assistant manager for one of OPC’s food stands at the Ohio State Fair. This week, I wrote my first press release, created some content for Ohio Porkline- a publication through the Ohio Pork Council- and attend the OAND conference as a representative of the Ohio Pork Council. I am excited to see that I already using skills that I have learned through my course work and I am enjoying advocating for the pork industry.
