This internship has been extremely valuable becuase it has helped me learn about Michigan and many different industries. It has helped me to build my writing portfolio and learn how to write using the voice of a brand. I have also learned what it is like to work in a fast-paced, multifaceted agency. The MEDC is a perfect place for an ambitious MSU intern.
What I wish was different
I wish that I had been a part of every segment of MarComm, not just the Travel side of the department. I would have liked to learn about the events, PR, internal relations, and design aspects.
Be proactive and always ask if your team needs help. Don't be afraid to meet with your boss and ask for projects!
