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.
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.
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.
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!
