Fowler Holding Company

Community Relations and Social Media Intern

May 2019 • Norman, OK

What I liked

I applied in March when I was desperately looking for an internship and I got an interview. I had no idea what community relations meant but I knew, from the description, that it would be handling events and relations with non-profit organizations by the automotive dealerships. I fell in love with the sponsorship process. I had no idea the other (business side) of the non-profit world worked so everything I have done with and for them has changed every aspect of what I want to do with my career. I want to work at an company working with community engagement and relations now and at a job that does not require me to work at a desk from 9-5 because I do my best work when I am in person. They let me have a flexible work schedule and come and go as I please and I love it.

What I wish was different

I wish that one of my bosses had not left and was still with the company, that would make my life a lot easier. But I also wish that the company would pay more, especially now that I am running a huge part of the department on my own.


Make sure you have a lot of creative and personally efficient ideas when you come into this job. My boss/bosses are great but they give you freedom and do not watch over you so you have to be able to manage your own time and push yourself to get what needs to be done by the time it needs to be done. It has been a wonderful experience and I have learned so much, across the board, from working here, so when you get the job, fully jump into it and you will prosper. Do not hold back or feel timid.
