The finternship

Cameron Walker

We haven’t met, but I am Cameron and I’m the token summer “fintern” here at liquidfish. I like to keep things interesting, and it has been brought to my attention that liquidfish doesn’t award employee of the month. So, in an attempt to establish a new tradition, I went around our office and interviewed fellow fish who believe they have what it takes to be employee of the month. I selected a few candidates whom I interacted with during my time here.

Hannah Franklin: Executive Assistant

“I deserve to be employee of the month because I keep our OG fishies alive and kickin'. I resurrect everyone from their morning sleepy eyes by making coffee every morning. I keep us stacked on snacks for those days when you've got the munchies. What more could you want in an employee amirite?”

Zena Cherian: Digital Marketing

“Billy Shakespeare once said, "Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them." I am the latter.”

Will Cobb: Social Media Specialist-

“I deserve employee of the month for making sure the office emotional support animal makes it in every day.”

Lane Wheeler: Developer

“Me? Employee of the month? Absolutely not.”

After a close race and minutes of thoughtful consideration, I have come to a decision. Your inaugural “Employee of the Month” for August is, you guessed it, me. I can’t help but brag on this company I had the privilege of interning with, but I can help but brag on my accomplishments while I was here. To name a few...

  • Brainstormed & planned campaigns
  • Produced blog series for a client
  • Produced a contest for a client encouraging user-generated content
  • Starred in said client’s campaign ad…a story for another time
  • Extensive and thorough CMS work
  • Created content calendars and managed social accounts
  • Saved the day with Chipotle
  • LAST BUT NOT LEAST ...made friends :)

On a sincere note, thank you, liquidfish, for a challenging, humbling and fulfilling summer. Thank you to the people here who welcomed me with open arms and sublime memes, you made this finternship a FUNternship. I will admit, I was intimidated at first, but as author Brene Brown says, “Sometimes the bravest and most important thing you can do is just show up.”

Thank you for providing the limitless tank of opportunity for a fish like me to show up and learn how to swim.
