As my time as a Social Media Marketing Intern at Haley Marketing winds down, I reflect on all that I have learned and experienced during the past 14 weeks. For starters, the people are what truly made this a great intern experience for me. Everyone was so welcoming to me right off the bat and made me feel like a part of the team.
I particularly enjoyed how much responsibility I was given shortly after arriving (in other words, I wasn’t doing boring intern work) and how the tasks assigned to me were meaningful. I learned several new skills that I am thrilled to add to my repertoire of strengths in the marketing field, some which I have already been able to incorporate with another company I was also working for. From creating content plans to uploading blog posts to WordPress, scheduling social media posts and deciphering Google Analytics, I now know so much more about the industry than I did previously.
I can confidently say this internship has better prepared me for my next two years at the University of Pittsburgh as a Marketing and Supply Chain Management major. I am grateful to have been given this opportunity and excited for what the future has in store for me next. Thank you, Haley Marketing!
