My First Months as a Daxko Intern

By July 29, 2016 No Comments

I’ve always been one of those people who knew what she was going to be.

Ever since I could pick up a crayon, I would create whenever and wherever I could. And ever since I could use a mouse and keyboard, I would create with technology. As a millennial experiencing adolescence in a time where iMacs were becoming commonplace in school systems, my initial curiosity sprouted from my desire to reimagine reality.

Daxko has allowed me the freedom to combine my passion for art and technology in an impactful way. With most of my assignments consisting of graphic design work, something I had no prior confidence in, I feel like I can add a new skill to my résumé now that I’ve designed a few promotional cards and flyers. Additionally, I am pleased I can use my cultivated skills in videography to create and provide promotional footage for the Daxko team.

In just over a month, I feel that I have challenged myself to take initiative with learning as much as I can about the tech industry, ERP systems, and event marketing. I’ve always had an interest in the tech industry, but learning about the products offered by Daxko’s software has piqued my curiosity in how multimillion dollar businesses operate. Coincidentally, the final course of my undergraduate degree is on information systems accounting, so I have been applying my studies on enterprise reporting programs and their growing importance in industries. Furthermore, I have networked and been advised by team members with career positions I aspire to. I have learned a lot from my interaction with the marketing team as to how many dedicated people it takes in making sure an event runs smoothly.

While entering “the real world” is an uncomfortable thought many recent college graduates share, I’ve always felt born ready to face anything the world has to offer me. In a short amount of time, I have experienced an easy transition from the academic setting to the office environment. They really were not kidding when they said it’ll be no time before I feel like I’ve always been part of the Daxko team!
