I think it is safe to say whoever coined the phrase “If it sounds too good to be true…” never worked at InfoTrust.
The summer before college I worked as a mascot for a minor league baseball team. It was a blast, and I believed that nothing I ever did after that would be as exciting or rewarding as pulling pranks on umpires or shooting out free t-shirts. Once in college I began my search for an internship alongside my peers. Some of the things I learned in this process was that there are a thousand ways to say “official errand runner” and that if something sounded too good to be true, it probably was.
As college progressed, my interests started to move towards entrepreneurship. That passion led me to volunteer at NewCo Cincinnati, a showcase of the great local start-ups and innovators in the city I now call home. I was paired at random with InfoTrust; everyone was welcoming and even though there were some high profile people in attendance, they made me feel like the VIP of the event. I learned about InfoTrust’s free lunch, found out they had a ping-pong table, and that there weren’t any cubicles. For once in my life, the little voice in my head that says “if it sounds too good to be true…” was left speechless.
Fast forward to January 2016, as I am acclimating to my first few weeks as an InfoTrust Intern, I haven’t heard a peep from the little warning voice in my head; he is too busy playing with the mini-basketball hoops. In just the first few weeks I have already been trusted with actual responsibilities, not frivolous tasks. I am working with the product team helping to create a stronger brand, and on the marketing side, putting together a series of interviews of top minds and thought leaders in web analytics. Everyone here at InfoTrust has focused on helping me achieve a high quality and challenging internship. I’m really glad to be a contributing part of a great company and there is nothing “too good to be true” about it.
