Eiteljorg Insider | Emily Sabens, Marketing & Communicatons Intern

emilysabensIt is hard to believe that my time at the Eiteljorg is already over! When I was applying for summer internships, I knew that interning with the Eiteljorg’s communications and marketing department was my No. 1 choice for an internship; however, I never could have imagined how much I would truly love this institution, as well as the amazing staff I got to work with.

During my three months at the Eiteljorg, I have learned so much and have gotten the chance to participate in so many amazing opportunities. Throughout my internship, I prepared social media posts, attended meetings, learned the ins and outs of a museum and even wrote articles for our Storyteller Magazine. I have learned so many valuable skills that I am sure will help me as I progress in my career.


I also participated in many of the wonderful events the Eiteljorg Museum hosts every summer. Each Wednesday evening in June and July, I had the opportunity to document our super-fun Summer Under The Sails concerts along the downtown Canal. I also had the chance to take part in our annual Indian Market and Festival. Seeing the museum come alive that last weekend in June was magical, and it was definitely one of my favorite parts of my internship.

Even though I am majoring in journalism, this summer showed me the possibilities of what I can do with my degree. I could not be more thankful to have spent these past few months at the Eiteljorg; the skills I gained, as well as the memories I created, will follow me into my next internship and through my final year at Ball State, as well as into my future career.
