Interns are an intricate part of the LW family. We don’t have them running to get coffee, or doing menial tasks. If you are an intern at LW Branding, you are apart of the family and will be treated as such. Yes, we teach the interns the ins and outs of the sports world, but they bring a new set of eyes, and continually teach us new ideas they are learning in school. An internship at LW Branding is a mutually beneficial relationship.
Yes, experience is important, and we make sure that all incoming interns have experience that will apply to the work they will be doing, but equally important is the culture fit. We pride ourselves on our relationships - with clients, yes, but also with each other. Collaboration and brainstorming are a large part of what we do, so it is important that all team members not just get along, but enjoy each other.
This past summer our interns have far exceed any expectations that we could have had - both personally and professionally. The enthusiasm and positivity that they brought everyday has been a crucial part of keeping our environment creative and energized. We look forward to coming to work because we get to spend time with people we genuinely like. Not to mention, the work that they have done continually blows us away. If Lauren tells them something once, they do it. They do not need constant babysitting or supervision, they are self-starters and they are efficient.
One of the interns is finishing up this week, and the other two are leaving not long after. Safe to say we are not ready to let them go. The only downfall to having interns? Unless it’s their last semester of school, they always have to go back to college. If you know anyone looking to break into the sports biz, send them our way!
