Today is the first day of my second week as an intern at Hanky Panky. Having my first week under my belt, I would like to share my story with all of you Hanky Panky followers. Every day leading up to my first day was terrifying. I had no idea if they would like me, or worse, if I would like them. I would have nightmares about myself running aimlessly through the streets of Manhattan during a torrential downpour in order to get the staff their much needed caffeine fix. I should go ahead and apologize now because I don’t have any crazy first week intern horror stories like this to share.
My first day, I walked into 373 Park Avenue South to be greeted by the friendliest door man ever. He wished me a good morning as I told him that we would be seeing a lot of each other. That is, if my first day goes better than it did my nightmares. I made my way up the elevator to the 12th floor. The doors of the elevator opened and I felt a huge sense of relief when I saw the Hanky Panky signature pastel purple covering the walls.
My nervousness subsided as I realized that I was walking into Hanky Panky, a great company built on the qualities of feminine, girly fun! How could it be so bad? And it wasn’t at all! In fact, my first day was exciting and refreshing. I was able to stir up my inner creativity by working with the Marketing department on their collegiate campaign. And in the Sales department, I helped with orders and learned about the new styles for next season. The best part of it all is that I was able to work with the absolute BEST staff in the world! I am so glad to be a Hanky Panky intern!
