Takeaways from my Summer Internship at Shift•ology Communication


By Lydia Henry

Throughout my internship at Shift•ology Communication, I gained several new and improved skills to take into my senior year at Bowling Green State University. I learned different ways to create engaging content, communicate with clients, improve my writing skills and more. Unlike other internships, I was able to work on a wide variety of projects for clients within multiple industries, including agriculture, education, sports and nonprofits, to name a few. 

I was granted the freedom to be creative and contribute to many types of projects that catered to each client’s unique needs. This allowed strong opportunities for growth and I experienced much more than I could have hoped for from an internship.

This internship allowed me to build a good understanding of the PR world and validated that I’m in the right field! The entire team at Shift•ology made me feel welcome and trusted me to work independently on various projects. Even as an intern, I felt valued and was given the opportunity to do important work that will carry over to my future career. 

Most importantly, I had so much fun! My favorite memory from my internship is playing cards with and getting to know the Shift•ology team on our overnight trip to Cooper Farms. The Shift•ology team is amazing and I’m so grateful I had the chance to work with them.
