Thanks for all the great questions on our last post, "Ask a Club Penguin Intern."
Although I would love to answer all of your questions, I've gotta go home at some point haha. I did however try and draw a picture of my penguin! I'm still curious as to why I'm not on the artist team... ;)
Now on to the questions!
Riyita: "What are you going to school for?"
I am going to school for my Bachelor of Business Degree, focusing on Branding and Entrepreneurship. Fun fact: Up until right before I applied for my internship with Club Penguin, I was originally set on being an Accountant. I realized after a few accounting courses that it was not my passion, so I quickly changed paths.
Goldblue1: "How did you sign up to be an intern?"
Signing up to be an intern is much like applying for any other job. I sent in my resume through my University and went through the same interview process other team members do. Although an internship isn't mandatory for some Universities and Colleges, it's extremely helpful when figuring out what you want to do for a career.
Semper5010: "What department do you work for?"
I work with the Community team, so I get to work in an office with Polo Field and Ninja! Community isn't the only team in Club Penguin that offers internship positions, either. Teams such as: Project Management, Programming, and Art sometimes offer internships as well.
Xela424: "What's your favorite thing about working at Club Penguin?"
It's hard to choose just one thing, so I'll give you a few! My favorite things about working at Club Penguin are the opportunities available to enhance your learning, as well as the amazing people you get to work and interact with. I work with some incredibly talented people that never cease to amaze me. I also never thought how much interacting with you guys could be so rewarding! Being in contact with the community on a daily basis is what makes this job worthwhile. I have seen what many of you are capable of and what you are striving for -- it absolutely blows me away.
Surgex10: "How long do interns stay at Club Penguin for?"
Interns usually stay a minimum of 4 months but some can get extended longer.
Trainman1405: "Do you think you'll return to Club Penguin in the future for a full time job and not just an internship?"
I would love to if I had the chance! I'm extremely thankful for the opportunity to work with a company that promotes values that align so close with my own. I only have one year left towards my degree, so we'll see how it goes!
Whaddya think? Are there any other departments you'd like to know about next?
