Immediately after I got back from the staff retreat in D.C, I was pushed right back into my daily routine of school. The VHA digital media team decided to cancel the staff meeting and they gave me time to reflect on what I liked about the trip and what could be changed.
But I still did some work that week: I submitted my PowerPoint on how to improve the internship program, I answered two staff members’ email requests, and attended an Equitas training seminar.
This last week, I attended the staff meeting and turned in the meeting minutes. We briefly discussed the trip and everyone’s time off, and who would cover for whom. I was selected to review the social media comments for Facebook and Twitter, which is super exciting.
I was also chosen to review and formulate a spreadsheet of weekly reports for all of 2019’s social media. I will collect data and produce a report with averages and what worked and what didn’t. I will officially start that in the next few days.
Also I am super excited for a possible upcoming project which would be going to the Wilkes Barre VA Medical Center and taking photos and videos. I did a one hour training session on video editing on the retreat and Matthew thought that he could work this out.
Also in the future I will be attending a seminar on Social Studio, which is another social media data resource.
This internship has been nothing but an amazing experience, and I look forward to future projects.
