My internship consisted of mostly marketing, but some event planning as well. I learned to use the backside of a website very well, and learned many different marketing strategies that I did not previously know.


Partaking in the Pope and Young Biennial Convention was one of my greatest accomplishments during my time as an intern with Boyt Harness Company. Being able to work at a big convention like this one gave me a lot of opportunities to meet many people and become familiar with many companies I had never hear of. The overall experience I gained by working a big convention was great!

What advice would you give?

My advice for future students is to not be afraid to ask questions. Also, if you have a new idea, put it out there. It might get shot down or it may not be successful, but keep sharing your new ideas!
