Patrick, Marketing Intern, San Francisco, CA
So as the summer is beginning to wind down, I’ve started to try to collect my thoughts on my experiences here at CBSi. Among the highlights of my summer definitely have to be icing my boss on her birthday, getting autographs from the entire Always Sunny in Philadelphia cast at Comic-con, and, of course, seeing naked tourists in the windows of the Mariott that my cubicle faces. Who doesn’t want to see that?
As well as many celebrity encounters, as pictured here of my boss with her future husband, this internship has certainly had many high points. It was a bit of an adjustment going from relatively unstructured college life to working nine to five, even though CBSi is fairly casual. It’s been a change, however, that I have quite enjoyed. Really, the best part about my summer has been working and interacting with my co-workers. CBSi is an incredibly welcoming and friendly place, and I am happy to count everyone who works in and around my area a friend. There is no sense of being a college intern that has to go through some type of hazing ritual of doing everyone’s grunt work.
I really can’t think of a better place to work for a summer during college. This was my first experience living outside of the East Coast, and I will finally admit it – the West Coast is the best coast. Even though the weather has been as dreadful as advertised in San Francisco, I’ve had a blast. It’s exciting to be able to work at such a dynamic company in the heart of such an incredible city.
