Oscar Winberg here, the intern, aka Distraction Jackson. I’m currently studying business at NYU and I’ve been interning here at WeDidIt for about 5 months. Being an intern at a startup is unique. I feel that I get to be a part of many things that wouldn’t be possible in more traditional internships at bigger companies.
Here at WeDidIt the day-to-day is never the same, and that is the nature of startups. One day I will be writing a blog post and another day I could be researching potential marketing opportunities, or haggling with FedEx for the best package size. The best part about startups though, in my opinion, is that you get to work and engage with all the people who make the decisions. As I’m writing this, Ben, cofounder, is sitting next to me and Su, other cofounder, is across the room. There are not many internships that gives you such a close relationship with the people in charge and I’ve learned a lot from them.
WeDidIt as a company is at a really exciting stage in its life and I’m super excited to be here and help all these guys out. In the process, I’m getting valuable experience that I can translate to future jobs and work relationships.
In the meantime, I will be working hard here at WeDidIt to make sure it will be a success, both for the team, who are hardworking, dedicated, and great guys, and for the non-profits WeDidIt help launch fundraising campaigns for. The future is exciting here at WeDidIt.
