What was the best part of your experience?

The best part of my experience was having the opportunity to work within a different culture. I know how the American work culture functions, and being able to compare that with a different part of the world was beneficial. Conflict and celebration happen differently in different places, and being able to experience that and see that I could adapt to those differences was huge for my personal and professional development.

This internship gave me the exact experience I need for what I want to do with my future

How did this experience impact you academically?

I was abroad for my internship, and during the internship I used skills from my DMTA minor in order to do the work my internship required of me. I did a lot of social media marketing and content work, and knowing how the platforms I was working with worked before I started was very beneficial. It's also helpful as I learned some things that I am taking classes on now, so I'm ahead of my peers within my minor because of the real-world experience I gained.

How will this experience impact your career goals?

This internship gave me the exact experience I need for what I want to do with my future. I'm hoping to move into social media marketing as a career, and having applicable experience within the corporate world already puts me ahead of others also in this market. It has allowed me to have actual experience to discuss with potential employers and show that I have the appropriate experience to start a career in this field.
