The Digital Summer Clinic ended in mid August, but our former interns haven’t stopped exploring the world of digital marketing! Throughout the Summer Clinic, students learned and implemented several aspects of digital marketing through the startup company they worked for as well as their own personal blogs and LinkedIn profiles.
Putting digital marketing into practice helped students better understand the world of digital marketing and led students into great opportunities to grow in their field. Of the 23 summer clinic interns, 15 are working part or full-time jobs in Southeast Michigan’s high tech economy. Seven are continuing their education as students and are focused on coursework to further the careers they explored this summer, and one is actively job seeking. Here are a few students who went through the clinic and landed themselves in a great position for their future!
