Inside Allison Development Group: Meet the Interns

It’s shaping up to be a busy summer at Allison Development Group, and we are thrilled to have our two interns, Katie Holbert and Claire Wilcox, here to help us get through it. We asked them a few questions to learn about their hopes for the summer, and so you could learn a little more about these new faces at our office. What surprised us by their responses was how much you might actually learn about ADG…an inside scoop so to speak.

What do you hope to learn this summer?

Clarie: I hope to learn more about each client’s story and the way ADG helps solve their problems and promote their products. I also hope to learn more about each team members’ role in the company and the techniques and skills they utilize to help produce the finished product.

Katie: I hope to apply everything I learned in the classroom at Converse College into real projects.  I want to further my business education and get a feel for what marketing is and what it entails.

What has surprised you so far about working at ADG?

Claire: I have been so surprised by the closeness of each team member; you would think they’re family. Everyone enjoys each other’s company and has a fun time working together. But above all, I have been surprised at the effect of it. With everyone working together in such a generous and thoughtful attitude, the intricate details of every project are strung together in an efficient and timely manner.

Katie: I really enjoy the work environment at Allison Development Group.  Everyone communicates with one another extremely well and are constantly working as a team.

If you had to think of one word to describe each person at ADG, what would it be?

Erica: Brilliant
Derek: Proficient
Caroline: Achiever
Rachel: Omnipotent
Brittany: Attentive

Katie: All of the staff are dedicated, hard-working, and silly!

So far, what’s your favorite aspect of working at ADG & why: print/ad design, PR, marketing, social media marketing, or web design?

Claire: So far I have really enjoyed helping Caroline with web copy. She has shown me useful information about state of the art programs, like WordPress. I have also been given the opportunity to update client websites to get experience in website design.

Katie: So far, I have only really worked on marketing projects and are enjoying it!

What’s your favorite snack at the office?

Claire: I LOVE the La Croix sparkling water drinks, particularly the grapefruit kind…it’s so zesty!

Katie: When someone brings donuts!

What do you like to do when you’re not working?

Claire: When I’m not working I like to exercise (hiking and jogging), read
news and entertainment magazines, binge watch TV shows like
Breaking Bad and Mad Men. And of course I like to anxiously wait ‘til
Sunday rolls around for the next episode of Game of Thrones.

Katie: I love to exercise and stay active.  I have also danced for 19 years and enjoy perfecting my art form when I am not working.
