There is Always Something New to Experience

Posted by Levine Communications Office on September 24, 2010

Recently we sat down with one of our memorable intern graduates, Ben Yano. Ben was involved in many different aspects of LCO, fully taking advantage of what this internship experience had to offer. Ben started out as one of LCO founder, Michael Levine’s interns. Some of his responsibilities included hiring new interns, planning various events, organizing guest lists, and attending events. He then moved on to be a team leader of the New Business Department. In this position, Ben successfully signed current client and comedian Carla Collins to the client roster. Way to go Ben!

What was your favorite thing about the LCO internship? I really enjoyed going to meetings with Michael with talent, media, clients, and new vendors.

What did you do to be successful throughout your time at LCO? I took every opportunity to learn and to observe, which allowed me to take in information that could help me grow as a person in the PR business. I always worked my absolute hardest and there was something to learn from every single task.

What is your advice to other interns? Treat every task that you do as if it is the most important thing, constantly be doing something, and take every opportunity to learn something.

What else can you tell us about the LCO internship? This internship helped me grow as a person and as a businessman because PR is an extremely challenging environment to work in. This internship is fast paced and has longer hours than any other job that I have ever done, challenging me further than I have ever been challenged. But I succeeded. Overall, it tested my ability to complete tasks in adverse conditions and instilled in me better discipline, creativity, and a work ethic that will never be forgotten.

Ben constantly said what a positive experience he had with the internship and recommends it to those who are eager to learn and willing to work hard. There is always something new to experience. So, why don’t you try experiencing LCO PR?
