What comes to your mind when you think “f-word”? Fantastic, freak, frumpy, fearless, farm, fast, film, fluoride, Friday, frugal. There are a vast amount of “f-words” in the English language, but we all know which one was first on your mind… Your mother wouldn’t be proud. It’s time to get your mind out of the gutter because in this case, the “f-word” to which I am referring is family.
Family means countless different things to many different people. A family is a group of people with the same ambitions and principles who work together for the greater good of the whole. I had the luxury of joining a family recently, FabCom. FabCom is a boutique, strategic marketing agency that fully encompasses the ultimate “f-word”: family. FabCom and family, two “f-words” that go hand-in-hand.
The first real involvement I have had in the workforce was as an intern at FabCom this summer. Normally, when thinking of the business world, people anticipate a cutthroat, every-person-for-themselves feel. However, in reality, the FabCom atmosphere is one of acceptance and genuine togetherness. The experience I had as a summer intern for FabCom was exceptional. Taking part in client meetings, video shoots, and production was just half the fun. What stands out as fun about an internship at FabCom is being a part of the family. My experience would not be the same without the aura of family being all around the second you walk into FabCom each day.
