Fetching coffee and making copies are nowhere to be found on the Bang Energy intern job description… but high energy, positivity, and plenty of drive definitely are!
The summer 2021 internship program was a complete success! With much to learn and even more anticipation to get started, our interns were off to a fast start and kept their momentum going all through their time here at Bang Energy!
As these fresh new faces got their first glimpse at what it takes to operate our facilities, the excitement was real! To get the complete experience, each intern was allotted two weeks with each team in the Marketing Department. No busywork, errand running, or sample projects here. They shot content, scheduled posts, and assisted real Bang Energy customers.
The focus of each session is to immerse our future Bangsters in the day-to-day so they can get real, hands-on experience and be able to walk away more knowledgeable and with a better understanding of what it takes to get the job done. “Our internship program provides real-life knowledge and skills. It’s an opportunity for interns to observe, contribute, and rotate through the different Marketing departments at Bang Energy. It also provides career connections, mentors, and networking opportunities within the organization,” explains Customer Relations Manager Lisa Fernandez who helps lead the program.
Lindsey Hannah, a student from the North Carolina State University had this to say about her time with Bang, “This internship has truly been the best learning experience I could have asked for. This internship has managed to prepare me for the real world while also strengthening and growing my Bang brand knowledge.”
In addition to real-world skills, they also had a blast being part of the Bang family! “The fun work environment was definitely something that stood out to me the most. I’ve been enjoying the tasks I’ve been doing and am lucky to call it work. The people are amazing and have created the most welcoming atmosphere possible. Everything and everyone is so intentional, it felt like home on the first day,” says Hannah.
