Summer Internship Series: To All The Summer Interns We Loved Before

To Our Fabulous Summer Interns,

Thank you for bringing such creativity and personality to our CIIC team this summer. It is crazy how fast the past three months went; it feels like yesterday was the first day of training and already your internship has come to an end. 

It seems as if we were in your shoes just a short while ago. We remember the first day of our internships at CIIC clear as day. We were nervous and didn’t know what to expect, but we were also excited. Little did we know all of the amazing things we were going to learn about how the world of public relations works in real time. 

This summer was something new for both of us, as we went from being interns to overseeing and assigning tasks to interns. We went from college students to interns to full-time professionals all in a matter of months. 

We hope you enjoyed your time at CIIC and feel like it was just as fun as it was educational. Each one of you brought such an array of different strengths to the table. We thoroughly enjoyed watching you all start off this internship with little to no experience and in no time, excel with any task thrown your way.

However, we did just want to say thank you to all of you. Thank you for teaching us it’s okay to make a mistake but to always keep learning. Thank you for accepting our quirky personalities in the workplace; sometimes you have to add a little bit of fun and creativity to the office. Thank you for your willingness to help and your desire to succeed and learn more about public relations. Most importantly, thank you for those Starbucks runs when it seemed like there wasn’t enough coffee in the world to keep us going. And finally, thank you for being you!

We wish you all nothing but the utmost success in your futures and we cannot wait to see you grow in the world of public relations. Thank you for all your hard work this summer and good luck! Don’t forget, you’re always a part of the CIIC family. 

All the best,

Nina & Sam
