World’s Most Interesting Intern Farewell Rap
This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning. – Winston Churchill
As the balmy days of summer give way to crisp autumn mornings, I say to you, good friends, ‘Farewell.’ The summer has flown by – interning with the Cisco Social Media team has been quite the adventure. At this point, my intern video blog has received over 122,000 YouTube views, thanks to more than 1200 Tweets and 1700 Facebook shares. The first video has been viewed over 37,000 times right here on The Platform blog. In Q4 (which runs from mid-May to the end of July), total visitors to The Platform blog increased by 34%. Great stuff.
Thanks to write-ups in the Wall Street Journal, Mashable, B2B, and beyond, the vlog series has been able to generate some positive buzz as well as an impressive amount of engagement, as other interns, Cisco and non-Cisco alike, sent in video responses from all across the globe. Big props to all the equally interesting interns out there (my claim to be ‘the most interesting’ has, of course, been tongue-in-cheek : ), and a BIG, big thank you to everyone who spread the good word about these vids! I never made it to The Colbert Report…but things are just getting started. If you’d like to keep hanging out, I’ll be on Twitter @GregJustice furthering my quest to live an interesting life. Happy Summer – thanks for stopping by!
And one last response from yet another interesting intern:
