Alondra Ramos-Herrera, student at Eastern Michigan University. She is a senior Majoring in International Business and Marketing. While in the Digital Summer Clinic with Center for Digital Engagement, Alondra was a digital media specialist intern with the tech start-up Mi Padrino.
Why CDE Internship?
“I thought it would be a great opportunity to find what area of marketing I would be interested in and give me different options. I also hoped to network and see different companies.”
Experience Gained at the Clinic?
Being partnered with Mi Padrino, Alondra gained experience in vendor selling. “I did a lot of cold calling and emailing different vendors from all over the country.” Other tasks included being part of promotional videos and blog writing.
“One of the most valuable things I learned was how important it is to work as a team. A lot of the times, someone relies on you to get stuff done, so that they can get their stuff done. There was a lot of communicating.”
Going above and beyond is important as an intern. Alondra did so by being available for extra hours. Being available when the CEO needs you for a start-up is vital. This helped Alondra continue with her internship past the expected date.
Where Are You Now?
Content writing is a skill Alondra is developing. Learning how best to tell a story while keeping all audiences engaged is important for marketing.
