Give us a brief summary of your experience?

This spring 2022, I intern for the company Terez as their marketing and social media intern. I had such a wonderful experience utilizing my skills to work on marketing projects, social media platforms, and being a part of such an amazing team. I was able to learn more about marketing through a hands-on in-person experience, I was also able to learn more through my employees with the guidance of their help on each individual project I worked on. I got to experience a real business day at the office, which will be beneficial for me in the near future.

How did this experience impact you academically?

This internship impacted me academically because I want to physically learn what a work day consisted of and the projects I would be assisting on in an office. I wanted to utilize my academic skills in an internship where I can show my passion for my major through a business perspective. This internship is bridging the gap between learning and finding a career, and it will speed up the process of moving me toward my career goals. This internship allowed me to try out a career in a low-stakes situation, helping me to make more informed decisions on what I want to do with my life.

"This internship gave me the freedom to try different career paths and determine what my exact dream job would be, and working with Terez is definitely what it consists of."

How has the College of the Liberal Arts helped you to find and/or succeed in this experience (e.g., adviser, faculty, staff, enrichment funds, etc.)?

The college of Liberal Arts helped me find and succeed in this experience through my advisor. He helped me with receiving college credit for this experience and walked me through the steps I needed to follow in order to achieve it. Also, taking an internship class benefited my ability to succeed because I am able to reflect and talk about my experience and all of the amazing things I learned with the company.

Paterno Fellows Program affected my experience by providing me with an International Experience course and providing me with an excellent advisor who guided me through the steps of ensuring I received college credit for this spring 2022 internship.
