Where Are They Now: Camren Clouthier

Camren Clouthier, student of Eastern Michigan University graduating April 2019. While in the Digital Summer Clinic with Center for Digital Engagement, Cameren was a photographer and videographer intern with Breadcrumb Insights.

Why CDE Internship?

Camren first heard about the CDE summer clinic internship over social media.

“It sounded like an excellent opportunity to help me expand my own skills within the digital marketing world, so I figured, why not give it a shot?”

Experience Gained at the Clinic?

As an intern with Breadcrumb, Camren worked on a one to two minute video which explained what the company does for its clients, services offered, and about Breadcrumb.

The most valuable takeaway from working with Breadcrumb was learning how to better communicate messages. More specifically, in making the promotion video, I can honestly say that I learned how to convey a variety of topics in a more refined, timely, and effective way.

Where Are You Now?

Aside from being a full-time senior, Camren works with EMU Campus Life. He produces creative content such as photos, videos, and manages the department’s social media.

After graduating, Camren hopes to move to California. He wants to pursue a career in the film industry as a cinematographer or creative director.

Going Above and Beyond

While leaving an internship, you should make a lasting impression and show your appreciation. Camren did so with taking time to write a handwritten thank you letter to the people he worked directly with. 
I figured this would be a simple, but effective gesture to show my appreciation to them for giving me the chance to work with them all summer long.”

For Future Interns with CDE

“Don’t be afraid to jump right in and get involved. The connections you make in the CDE internship or with your incubator company will last way beyond the program and might even help you land that big job in the future.”

Thank you CDE

“I would like to give a big thank you to Bud Gibson, the Center for Digital Engagement Clinic, along with Tim Schaden and Laurent Stanevich at Breadcrumb Insights. You all took a chance on me and provided me with this incredible opportunity.”
