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.

Dear Santa,

Dear Santa,
I know. I’m probably a little too old to be writing this letter. Humor me.
I know you’re busy with requests from others more deserving than me, but you never know, right? Santa, I have gotten really busy lately. This is really good, but it’s also gotten a bit hectic, not necessarily stressful, but very hectic. I’m thinking an intern might do the trick!
My intern should be a well-rounded student, currently working on a communications, public relations or marketing degree. They need to know how to write, how to speak to a variety of people about a variety of topics, and handle more than one item at a time. They should not only have facebook and twitter accounts, but be able to monitor multiple accounts and understand the business impact that each has. My intern should also have a thick skin. Let’s face it; I’m a bit tough on people. I’m not brutal. I just have high expectations…my clients deserve it.
So Santa, if it’s not too much to ask, could you please bring me an intern for Christmas? Oh, and a new pair of boots!
