What a first week it has been! I did not know what to expect my first day walking in the office at Parsus, but it has exceeded every expectation in my mind. The very first thing I noticed was how tight of a group all of the employees are. While they are coworkers, they are more importantly friends. I believe this can be contributed to the man in the driver’s seat, G. His openness and friendly demeanor is infectious and is reflected in every employee.
The first day I entered the office, I hit the ground running. I have been lucky enough to participate in all aspects of business at Parsus. I have met with interesting clients from an entertainment company, sat in on conference calls with exciting hospitality companies, attended a proposal hearing, and researched information for an ingenious new Parsus project – Touchwood Films.
The majority of my time has been spent working on the Touchwood Films project. Touchwood Films is a film creation platform that enables customers of adventure companies to create short films that highlight their customer’s experience. More specifically, I created a pilot video for hot air balloon companies. This included adding personalized photos as well as animations that I created for it. In the upcoming weeks, my efforts will be put to the test as I pitch Touchwood films to hot air balloon companies around the Valley.
Even though I have only been at Parsus for a short time, I feel like I am part of their team. This is largely in part to the owner and founder G, and all of the people that he has chosen to work alongside him. I am very lucky to have this opportunity and I am grateful for all that I am learning. The fact that it is happening within such a successful company where people are happy to work is truly amazing. I am fortunate to gain this experience with such an innovating, successful company that has a great atmosphere, I am looking forward to the rest of the time I have this summer.
