Adventures of an EPICS Intern: Seven Days Left

Including today, I have seven full work days left at my internship with The Second City. The coolest thing to see is the growth of the company since I started on January 13th. Not only has the building grown, but new people have been hired and new policies were put into play. Projects that were just getting started when I arrived are now on their feet. For example, I had to write a bio on Broadway producer, Elizabeth Williams in February. I sat in on a call with her and two of the three Second City executives regarding investor events for the project.

The main project, and the project closest to my heart, is She the People: Girlfriend’s Guide to Sister’s Doin’ it for Themselves. This concept, previously referred to as “Funny Ladies”, was my first everything. My first written contract was for director Carly Heffernan, who I later met during my first table read and my first audition as videographer and reader with Beth Kligerman. The first time I was asked my creative opinion was during a meeting where we chose the official title. Brian told me he “trusted me to take care of it” for the first time when I created the personal invitations to the show that we will send out to frequent Second City fliers. Now, the art is being created for the show and tickets will go on sale later this afternoon! The pride I feel toward this project may seem a little silly for an intern, but I feel it nonetheless. During my January interview with Brian, I said that I thought the best part of producing is seeing an idea fully come to life and supporting it all the way past the finish line. She the People has definitely been my favorite part of my internship with The Second City and I absolutely can’t wait to come see it on its feet when I get home from my summer experience abroad.

Liz Coin is a sophomore Radio, Television, and Film student who is interning at The Second City this quarter.

Career Corner: Making the Most Out of Your Internship

As the school year winds down, it’s time to start thinking about summer plans outside the classroom. Internships are a great way to learn new workplace skills and gain experience in a field that you are curious and passionate about. If this is your first internship, you might be wondering what having an internship actually entails. Internships, especially unpaid internships, give students the opportunity to make mistakes in a safe, learning environment. Not every internship has a structured program, so it’s important to have close relationships with your supervisor and co-workers, try something new, and ask a billion questions.

These articles highlight some of the ways in which interns can proactively navigate the world of internships and make the most out of their experiences.
