Wow! After 10 weeks interning for SiriusXM, I am still speechless. SiriusXM went out of their way to ensure I had a successful internship.
As a Digital Content Intern, I truly got a taste of multiple sides of the business. Coming into this internship as a telecommunications major, I knew I wanted to edit video content, but I never imagined I would get to do some of the other tasks I was privileged enough to perform. I helped with daily shoots, which ranged from Town Hall events and radio interviews, to live studio sessions with major artists. My days were filled with creating, editing, and learning — all skills that I will cherish and bring with me in my future career.
My superiors and every individual I worked with in my department were the most welcoming, kind and helping people I have ever been surrounded by. I knew they were looking out for me and were happy to help answer any question that I had. They took the time to teach and get to know me on an individual basis, which is critical when in an unfamiliar environment. This is a fast-paced department and I was given responsibilities as if I were an employee, not an intern. I appreciate everything they did to help me grow this summer, and I plan on keeping in touch once the summer ends.
I thought being around actors and musicians every day was going to be the best part of my summer, but I have to say that the people I worked with and the lessons I learned were the greatest part of this internship. I cannot thank SiriusXM and the Digital Team enough for the perfect summer!
