Amy Devine Chats About Her Thirteen Years at Intouch Solutions
Intouch Senior Social Media Manager Amy Devine discusses her career with the company and what she sees for the future.
Tell us about your first week at Intouch.
My first week at Intouch was in 2001. I started as an intern and was planning on coming in and helping out during my time off from school. There was no formal intern program like the one currently in place. I mainly helped with updating content on the websites and writing articles to post on the sites. I also fact-checked and referenced other articles for the sites. The company was small, with 10-15 employees working in a little office down the street from where we are located now.
What is the most dramatic change you have witnessed during your time at Intouch?
I can’t pinpoint one dramatic change at Intouch. There has been a constant evolution every year that has been very noticeable. When I started, we were a small organization and I would see one or two new faces from time to time. Now you don’t know all your coworkers, and we have multiple offices with hundreds of employees. It’s impossible for everyone to be familiar.
What is the most exciting project you’ve worked on?
I’ve worked on numerous branded, non-branded, corporate and community-based websites and social media pages. I’ve learned a lot from each one. I’ve enjoyed being a part of the process of all of them to see the progression and evolution over time. It’s great to see Intouch stay on top of the industry and push the boundaries in such smart ways.
What do you like the most about working at Intouch?
I like that I’ve had the opportunity to gain an expertise in a very specialized industry and at the same time witness the evolution and growth of Intouch.
Where do you see Intouch and the industry as a whole in 15 years?
I see Intouch continuing to grow at a steady pace. Based on the past 15 years, in 15 more years, the company and the industry will be unrecognizable from its current state. I’m sure the technology and advancements will be beyond my imagination. In the near future though, I think the industry will continue to embrace and rely on social media more and more.
What is your favorite pop culture from 1999?
American Beauty, Fight Club, The Matrix, Austin Powers and Friends.
