Retail marketing intern.
How I got this internship:
I got this internship by networking with Dickinson alumni, faculty, staff and parents.
What I do, day to day:
I assist the Retail Marketing team in driving foot traffic to retail stores.
I have had other internship experiences. I hope that this will be my last one, however, as I look for a full time job.
Most valuable part of this experience:
Being present in all of the team meetings. I learned a lot and it was a great opportunity to dive in headfirst. I also worked on a few long-term, independent projects that were very interesting and rewarding.
Advice for students considering internships:
Do it. The process of getting one is tough but it is totally worth the effort/stress.
