My Private Life With A Private Guide
By Kelli Wilson
It is always important to understand what you’re doing when you’re working for a company. Right? I mean you wouldn’t take a job at an isogonics freezing laboratory if you were a Shakespearian History lecturer.
I came into A Private Guide, Inc. with a big smile and blank face! It’s difficult when it comes to internships because you never know exactly what you will be doing until you are doing it.
I knew what A Private Guide, Inc. was, but I didn’t know exactly how they did what it is they do, and I wasn’t even entirely sure what I would be doing. Well after two weeks on the job, I have not only learned a whole lot of information that will not only get me through this internship with them and also through real life, but I have also learned all about how to get myself “out there” and network.
Networking is the number one thing in this industry. That might be the only thing I heard in school and then also heard from Daphne (since nothing else I have learned in college seems to be helping me in the real job world…hmm...). I have had the opportunity to tour the incredible Kirkland Museum and even meet Hugh Grant, the director and personal friend of Vance Kirkland. I was able to sit in on meetings regarding the future of our great city. Of course by future I mean events future, not political or physical future!
It is amazing to me that I am finally feeling like I am doing something every day that effects others in so many ways. A Private Guide, Inc. has so much to teach me and so much for me to do, I feel as though my life journey is finally beginning.
