Getting the hang of it

 Well here I am at the start of the third week of my internship. It is a short week because of the Memorial Day holiday, but that doesn’t mean there is less work to be done around the office. This week I’m working to put together two posts about some Sharpie marker artists. The two people that I am working with are almost complete opposites so it will be interesting to see how different the posts will be. The pictures in this post are some previews their work.

I have really gotten into the flow of what the work schedule is going to be like and I have to say I’m very pleased with it. There is a lot of opportunity for new and different tasks every day. I think I would be bored if I had a schedule that I had to follow every day. Other things on the plate for this week are updating some of the brands Wikipedia pages. It may seem like a silly task, but think about it. Every time you Google something the Wikipedia page comes up in the top five results. It is important to make sure that this information is accurate and up to date. Also on tap for this week is the start of a 4square initiative with one of our brands. I don’t want to spill yet what it is, but I promise more information to come.

I hope everyone has a great start to their week and their summer!


INKtern Here!

Hello world and fellow office products fanatics!

Welcome to my blog for the Summer of 2011. I’m the one and only INKtern this year in the Social Media group, but I’m ready to take on the challenge. I get to work with some of the best (and most of my favorite) brands in office products this summer including Sharpie Markers, uni-ball, Paper Mate and Prismacolor. This blog will be about me, my work here, cool people doing cool things with our products and all the free pens that I get! I’ll keep you posted on some of the great things going on with all the products and maybe give you some inside scoop too. I’ll find pictures, videos and whatever else you could want. This summer there will always be a new pen around the corner for me!
