Generally speaking, Mondays are the scariest day of the week. The thought of the upcoming week is bone-chilling, reports and emails and Susan from accounting who won’t stop talking about her cats—I mean, every day working at Strathcom is a dream! (*mutters to self* Yes, that’ll do). But sometimes, the scariest day falls somewhere else in the week. Like when the Christmas party is on a weekday and the boss asks to see you the next morning. Or, when it’s staff pizza day on a Thursday and Taylor in Content ran out of Lactaid®. The most terrifying day of the year though, especially when it falls on a Wednesday, is Halloween.Continue reading “Move Over Great Pumpkin, It’s a Spooky Halloween Spectacular at Strathcom”→
Hi again! Its Josh Do, the last surviving intern. I was assigned a blog post to do for my last days at Strathcom Media and I’d like to thank Boris for this nomination (and for his excellent donair recommendations).
Over the last month, I was working on a video project for my school. The project required that I present the company and show some work that was related to my academic studies. Instead of going in with the boring traditional PowerPoint ordeal and reading off each slide, I decided to do a creative project as my presentation. This was also a great opportunity to work on my video and editing skills! I wanted to capture my experience at Strathcom as well as show what the company is all about. In this video, I give an awkward tour of the office environment, interview some amazing people from different departments, and reflect on my growth here at Strathcom Media.
I hope you enjoy watching this video as much as I did editing it! Thank you again to my Strathcom family for the amazing opportunity and experience.
Being a grizzled veteran of the Strathcom circuit, having worked here for a grueling 8 months, my sour disposition perked up slightly when I heard we were offering a few summer internships. Perfect, I thought to myself. Some poor unwitting souls I could heap abuse upon, who I could haze mercilessly, and who I could send to Starbucks for overly-complicated drink orders only to berate them when they returned with a drink that wasn’t precisely what I wanted (“I said double sweetener but half-sweet!”). But by the end of July, when our summer interns said a teary farewell, we had all learned a valuable lesson. Well, the interns learned a number of them. I’d like to think I learned to not be such a jerk—but only time will tell. Anyway, why am I telling you all of this? Let’s hear it from the interns themselves.
Before working for Strathcom Media, I’d never-before met such bold allies and merciless foes. I’ve witnessed a queen conquer faraway lands, weathered an attack from the Ice King, and watched a ruler’s dynasty overthrown. Since Game of Thrones’ season 8 premiere isn’t due until early 2019, I can’t help but see the Strathcom Media head office as a medieval battleground, wrought with schemes and maneuvering. Read on and hear about a new employee’s life at Strathcom Media — the Game of Thrones Edition.Continue reading “Strathcom Media: Beyond the Wall(s)”→
