Preparing for a career in marketing

My time as a communications intern for the Office of Student Employment has helped me gain many of the critical skills necessary for a successful career in marketing. I have expanded these skills by collaborating with my team to execute multiple office newsletters, maintain the content on three websites, create newsletter content when designing Salesforce marketing cloud newsletters, and attend trainings on topics relevant to work. In this showcase, I will demonstrate how I have grown my knowledge of systems analysis, complex problem solving, coordination, and writing with a comparison to the skills necessary for a career in editing by using O*NET as a foundation.
