The Intern Stereotype
When first looking for an internship, I had the typical fear of what comes with that. The coffee runs and the pointless sitting and waiting. I was not looking forward to it. Coming to Idle Tuesdays Recording Studio I was hopeful. I was hopeful that I’d learn the ropes of the recording industry and how a studio session played out.
To say the least, my expectations were blown away.
Surprisingly, my first day wasn’t filled with coffee runs and pointless writing! It went much better than expected. I was thrown right into the projects, including one where we record and promote an actual artist. It also turns out the artist that we signed is my best friend and band mate, which makes this project even more exciting.
Emily Hibard (my supervisor) has made this whole experience such an amazing journey. She genuinely cares about our education and tries her hardest to teach us everything she knows about the business. She also gives the interns a plethora of projects and assignments, which is very refreshing coming from a preconceived notion of coffee runs and pointless typing.
We the People…
In order to form a more perfect union… No I’m not going to recite the Preamble, but the people at Idle Tuesdays Recording Studio are some of the best people I’ve ever met. Andrew Washington, Alyssa Lujan, and Mason Haynie are the other interns at Idle Tuesdays, and working with them has been such a privilege. Everyone has such great ideas and we all work really well together.
Emily has been one of the best bosses I’ve ever had the honor of working with.
She’s so open and wants us to take on big projects and get the most out of this internship. I’m more of an introvert and I’m not the most talkative around people, but this group of people have helped me learn how to interact with others better.
All in all, this internship has been an amazing blessing in my life. I’m having the time of my life and I am learning so much. Stay tuned for some incredible announcements coming up!
