He may currently be in charge of the internship program at Propulsion Media Labs, but it wasn’t too long ago that Senior Account Coordinator Mike Remp was a young PML intern himself.
While he was a hardworking and skilled intern in the spring 2004, Mike also recalls some very funny stories from that semester, many of which revolve around the fact that he was prone to minor injuries on the job. Whether it was getting hit in the head while attempting to catch a flying box, or chipping a tooth on his can of soda, he always bounced back.
On one particular occasion Mike recalls being sent to an on-location event for a client that sold orthopedic shoe inserts. This event was held at a strip mall in what is surely the sketchiest neighborhood right outside of Atlantic City. Mike’s job for the day was to walk around outside and attempt to get people to go in and have a foot scan, as well as meet former Eagles player Mike Quick. The client even gave him his own pair of orthopedic shoe inserts to wear throughout the day. Despite Mike’s efforts and the opportunity to meet Mike Quick, passers-by were not quickly convinced to go inside. Ironically, even though Mike was wearing the orthopedic shoe inserts, the event left him with debilitating back pain throughout the next day.
