How Sweet it is to be an Intern at Moncur

As a newbie in the workplace, it can be difficult to get to know your co-workers. But, when there is a sense of security and care within the culture of the company, it makes it easier to feel a part of the team. In my experience as a summer intern for Moncur, I’ve learned that it’s an agency with more than just an “all work, no play” kind of work environment. Moncur exudes an involved, collaborative, creative and fun vibe. The first day I met everyone, I knew I was going to love it here.

As I adjusted to working here at Moncur, I discovered there were a lot of fun opportunities for team building, both in and out of the office. I love team bonding and figured it would be a good opportunity to get to know some of my co-workers. This past week, I went to the monthly happy hour — which was an ice cream social theme. When I got the email invite, it said ice cream, board games and adult beverages those are a few of my favorite things. So with no hesitation, I hit the “accept invitation” button.

As I was finishing up a project I had on my plate, the magic hour hit, and my co-worker Megan, with her welcoming and bubbly smile skips around the office chanting, “happy hour, happy hour and ice cream!”

I followed her to the kitchen and there was an array of yummy ice cream, toppings and — of course — spirits to make drinks. You could say my eyes went from a 😊 to the 😍 real quick.

So many options at the Moncur ice cream social and happy hour!

With my mouth watering for some sweets, I dug into the sherbet and added champagne to make a yummy concoction. As I was occupied with making my drink, Krystal, the office manager, was getting teams together to play Trivial Pursuit. It was the pink team vs. team yellow in the quest for victory.

I am not really sure which team was the winner. Even being the competitive person I am, did not seem to care which team won. In that moment I was enjoying the company of my co-workers. As a millennial and forever child-at-heart, I appreciate working for an agency such as Moncur; where I can be myself, be around great people and share my ideas.
