Lindsey Sharp, a 2019 B.S Agricultural Media and Communication graduate, talks about how her internship with Cowboy Junction Church prepared her for life after graduation.
Where did you complete your internship?
I interned with Cowboy Junction Church in Hobbs, New Mexico.
How did your internship help prepare you post-graduation?
Building relationships, planning events, practicing my public speaking skills, and being forced out of my comfort zone during my internship; helped me with my current position: A recruiter for South Plains College.
Describe briefly what you did for your internship.
I was assigned to assist the media team in shooting and editing videos, updating the website, and posting on the social media platforms. I was part of planning and hosting two major events: The Create Women's Conference and Camp Crossfire. My favorite experience was getting the opportunity to create an app for the Women's Conference. The app contained any and all the information that the women attending the conference would need: speaker's information, schedule, maps, and more! It was my project from the beginning to the day that it launched.
