For the internship program this month, we are featuring Clare Tabor.  Clare is doing her internship here at Lewis Central.  She is working for Josh Allen, Technology Integration Specialist, as a Social Media Intern.  Clare learned about this internship from a friend who recommended her.  She thought it might be interesting, so she pursued it.  Clare’s internship involves developing social media content for Lewis Central, primarily via Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.  She goes to different LC schools based on events or activities going on.  She then talks to the students and teachers and creates posts.  These posts can be about anything from a classroom activity to a varsity game. 

Clare has learned various skills during her internship such as using editing software, and how to interact with various types of people in order to obtain information, to learn their story, and to learn what they are doing.  Clare feels that making posts on social media is like telling a story in a short, interesting manner. 

In the future, Clare wants to go into architectural drafting and the skills she is learning in this internship will help her, especially those skills related to relationships and communication with others.  In her future job in architecture, she will also be working with a lot of different clients.  She will be able to transfer other skills that she is currently learning such as how to adapt to new technology, learn it fast, and apply this learning to job activities. 

Clare feels the internship experience will be good to reference on her resume.  She feels that the experience has forced her out of her comfort zone because it has made her interview others and use various social/communication skills.  Clare would recommend that other students get involved in the Internship class.  She feels that it helps you try out a career before you go to college and gain valuable, “real world” professional experience.
