Internship: Mid-Term Paper
Internship Site: Merle Norman Cosmetics (406 S Griffin St., Elizabeth City, NC)
Duties and Responsibilities: My duties and responsibilities include: Helping customers (when
needed) pick what product is right for them, what eyeshadows match what lipstick color, post
advertisements for social media (new makeup trends, how-to videos), put outfits together to post
on social media for their clothing and accessory line (All That Glitters), help keeping the store
clean (wipe down shelves, re-organization), inventory, clean makeup brushes (when needed),
help with brand image and try to bring in more customers “Diversity”. Overall, Crystal and her
crew has made it clear to me that they lack in advertising basically they need to reach more
customers and they would love if I could help and bring in more loyal, consistent customers.

the woman that I am supposed to be. I know now that there will always be some doubt it is
normal, and I am human and I have to overcome that and believe that I am strong and capable to
achieve anything I put my mind to. I must focus and put me first.
