The “Lovely” Intern Recap: Spending a Summer at LiveLovely.com (Part 1)
As the summer comes to a close we’d like to take a moment to catch up with our very ‘Lovely’ summer interns, to hear about their experiences over the course of summer 2012. They arrived, they bonded, they contributed, they were promoted, but most of all, they fought to be mayor of the office on Foursquare.
Name: Maxx Bricklin
Position: Business Development Intern
Hometown: Malibu, CA
What was a typical day at Lovely like for you?
The majority of my time was spent doing research, making phone calls, pitching marketing partnerships, going to meetings out of the office and participating in team meetings.
How was working at a startup different than other places you’ve worked?
I had much more responsibility working at Lovely than I had at previous jobs, and I found myself incredibly motivated by the energy of the office to hold myself to the highest standard possible.
What have you learned this summer?
I learned how to formulate and execute great business pitches and to do thorough market research.
What was your main focus this summer?
My main focuses were staying in touch with contacts in LA, the mobile application, and working on partnerships for transportation integration.
What was your favorite part about being an intern at Lovely?
The environment and the responsibility. I really believe in the product and the problem the company is solving.
If you could meet one person, dead or alive, who would it be?
If you could have any superpower what would it be?
Would you recommend an internship with Lovely to your friends?
What advice would you give to future interns?
Go to Deli Board immediately.
Stay tuned for parts 2 and 3, as we catch up with the other two Lovely interns from summer 2012!
