No two days are the same as an ambassador at Imagine Media. We call our interns ambassadors because we are held to the same standards as a full-time Imagineer and are entrusted to fulfill and embody Imagine’s core values. Our core values are the guiding force for decision making from day one and they remain part of our daily conversation during our time with Imagine Media. Setting expectations helps us understand both what’s expected of us and how we can embody the culture of the company.
The Imagineers have attended many career fairs and had the pleasure of meeting hundreds of students and hearing their stories. Believe us when we tell you that of those many students, the ones who stood out to us did so for a reason. We’ve rounded up some helpful tips for you to build a relationship with the company you meet with.
As I began my journey as an ambassador, I was overwhelmed by all of the new information I was learning. I was engulfed in this new world of social media that I had not seen before. In the forefront, you see Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with advertisements but there is so much more that goes on behind the scenes. With Monday meetings to partner photoshoots I began taking it all in as fast as I could.
Once I graduated and moved back home to Atlanta, I accepted a position to work as a Social Media Ambassador for Imagine Media. Working for Imagine has been one of the most eye-opening experiences for me so far. Prior to the Ambassador Program, I had zero hands-on experience working for a marketing agency and hardly any experience with marketing tools. However, it has taught me how to work in a variety of marketing platforms that will be useful for my future career. I learned that gaining knowledge and challenging yourself will lead you in the right direction.
I have been an ambassador with Imagine Media Consulting since the end of August (seriously, where has the time gone?) and enjoyed every minute of it. Starting out as a journalism major at Georgia Southern University, I switched to public relations the end of my sophomore year. Making that switch was the best decision and I haven’t looked back since.
