Question 1: What new skills or knowledge did you acquire during your summer internship with us?
I learned how to plan, execute, and manage many different marketing campaigns. I learned how to use various programs – such as our CRM – to make marketing processes more efficient.

Question 2: How did your summer internship contribute to your personal and professional growth?
One skill I learned and have grown with is project management. The internship gave me the opportunity to take ownership of campaigns from start to finish, and those skills and qualities I will be able to use throughout my personal and professional life.

Question 3: What was your favorite project and why?
My favorite project would be the development of the Supplier Site. The team tasked me with creating an online portal where our suppliers could go to get key information about our business easily. I built the site from the ground up and continue to manage it. Seeing that our largest suppliers use a product that I had ownership over is fulfilling.

Question 4: How Would You Summarize the Unique Experience of Being Part of Our Internship Program?
During my time here, I was able to learn the industrial distribution industry and be hands-on in the execution of many tasks and campaigns. It can be a fast-paced environment, but I was able to develop my skills in marketing, and now I can continue to use those skills in my current employment at Relevant.
