Experiences as an Intern

Author: JLB

Published On: June 25, 2008

Two weeks after graduating from The University of the South, I packed up my belongings from home in Charlotte, N.C., and moved to Nashville. I started my internship with JLB WORKS on the second day of June, and continue to be fascinated and eager to learn everyday.

 

There are countless things that I have done as an intern at JLB. I have spent a lot of time writing articles, taking pictures at events and updating FranklinIs.com. It has been a lot of fun, and my enthusiasm for the website has probably begun to bother my friends. I also had an amazing opportunity to write nine articles for the Williamson County Fair Guide. It was a challenge because of my lack of experience with county fairs (and magazine-style writing in general), but I ended up being able to connect my personal experiences to the experiences of fair competitors.

 

I have also had the privilege to work with the creative minds and self-proclaimed “people of action (aka action figures)” at JLB. I was apprehensive about interning for such esteemed individuals with unimaginable superpowers … possibly this is where my psychology degree could come in and somehow I could warp their minds!

 

It turned out that mind games were not the superheroes weakness, but they are terrified of insects, spiders and the like. I quickly figured out that my superpower was being able to ward off tiny, eight-legged creatures and squirming cockroaches. So, I am happy that I have a superpower to contribute, even if it is killing the insects found crawling around the offices.

 

I am really looking forward to the second half of my internship and the challenges ahead.


It’s remarkable working with the team that treats your business they would their own with drive, innovation, humility and a shared love of bringing great things to the wonderful Franklin & Nashville community.

“I started with JLB when they first opened fifteen years ago, when they redesigned a website for me.  They are my go-to company for anything to do with web sites. These guys are professional, talented, creative and an energetic team. I will always go to JLB first for my web design work. Thanks JLB.”

We interviewed several web design firms, but found that JLB’s talented team was the most creative, innovative, and professional. Choosing JLB has been a great decision! We are fortunate to have JLB be a part of the BMC Metalwork’s future as we continue to enhance our business.

“There were a number of website design companies in Nashville that would have done an adequate job for our company. The difference was that JLB wanted to be our partner and has been for 11 years. STAR Physical Therapy has been blessed to have them as a teammate.”
