I was the first intern at CBC not in the broadcasting stream. Instead, I pursued my interests in their Communications and Marketing team. I enhanced my previous knowledge with communications and add depth with another job that boosted my resume. What I learned was how to interact with others within an office environment. There were some issues with colleagues and overtime, I stood up for myself and professionally explained my workplace struggles to my supervisor.
CBC is a cutthroat company and I now know that I need my future workplace vibe to be more lax and youthful. One thing I appreciate is that my team let me work on my solo project and try to make something that I could have ownership of. The internship was unpaid and I paid for my commute to and from work.
