    Intern Chin Nou Khang with some of his colleagues from 3M Corporate Communications.

    By Chin Nou Khang, 3M Corporate Communications Intern

    My first step into 3M’s Corporate Communications department gave me a thrilling feeling, because I have never been an intern ever in my life. It was one of those eye-opening experiences.

    I got this internship through the BrandLab, which brings together high school students from diverse backgrounds with professionals in the communications and marketing industries. There were over 50 companies involved, and I was lucky enough to land in the 3M Newsroom. I worked with the digital and social strategy team. We solved problems and found solutions with creativity. One of the first things I did was brainstorm fun ways to represent visually for the team how many visitors come to our website. We ended up putting Skittles in a jar to represent visitors – and it’s filling quickly! I also am learning about all the equipment involved in broadcast journalism.

    I met so many great people throughout my experience here and will continue to connect with them in the future. I am glad to be using my summer to get experiences I will never forget. Overall, it made me realize how proud I am to be at 3M, where I can be innovative in my very first internship and challenge myself to be a better individual.
