Marketing Intern

February 2018 Detroit, MI
“I liked to have learned the importance of marketing in construction. When you hear all the noise and see the blocked of sidewalks you think of inconveniences. You don't normally think of all the hard work that goes into figuring out how such a project can be pulled off and it starts with the marketing team.”
