Here’s what 2012 summer intern Tiffany Huang (New York University ’13) had to say about her experience at Techonomy:

Of the six internships I’ve had during college, my summer internship at Techonomy has been hands down the most valuable and instrumental in shaping my personal interests and career development.

Working with just 6 other people, I got to experience the “start-up” life where I was able to wear many hats and take full ownership of projects. I remember for my first assignment, I wrote an article on the Socialcam app for Forbes.com/Techonomy that ended up attracting hundreds of hits and social media shares in just a few days. How cool is that? Other projects I worked on included interviewing and profiling CEOs of startups, streamlining a content management system for Techonomy’s editorial contributors, overseeing Techonomy’s social media strategy, and researching event opportunities in China. I also had a few geek-out moments when I first met and worked with our CEO, David Kirkpatrick, and when Erick Schonfeld walked into the office as I have been a longtime fan of their work.

At Techonomy, I never felt like I was just an “intern.” From day one, I worked closely with everyone and had the freedom to execute any ideas I had that I thought would make things work more efficiently—freedom that you don’t typically get working for a larger corporation. Throughout my internship, I quickly learned to be inquisitive and bold and take risks.

This is not the an internship where interns are expected to go on coffee runs or just do administrative work—at Techonomy, you actually get to learn the ins and outs of the business by being immersed in every aspect of it. An internship at Techonomy is a must for anyone who is interested in the technology and media industries and it will surely open many doors!

Tiffany Lin (University of Wisonsin ’14) on her 2013 summer internship:

Throughout my internship, I was given free rein to express and contribute ideas regarding Techonomy’s website content and social media marketing strategy—freedom an intern rarely comes across. I perpetually had work entrusted to me, and I felt like I belonged to the team; not only did I learn how to use social media management applications and analytical programs like Socialflow and Google Analytics, but when my supervisor went on vacation, I was chosen to fill his shoes. At Techonomy, I felt that my input was always valued and that I was actively contributing to the team’s goals. The trust Techonomy puts in its interns is truly monumental. I could not have asked for a better internship opportunity at an intelligent media company embracing the future of the intersection of technology and the economy.
