Foray Design

Marketing Intern

January - August 2019 • Brooklyn Heights, NY

What I liked

Working for Foray has been my best job experience so far. From the beginning, I was given and trusted with more responsibility than I expected, which gave me an unmatchable experience. The startup environment allowed me to be a part of an actual product launch, and learn first hand how a business functions and how to work with a team. Even though I was just an intern, I was included in all kinds of conversations about product, marketing, and all the in betweens. Foray really is a team, and working here has given me a chance to meet and work with some amazing individuals who have helped me develop incredibly important problem-solving skills. I feel like I am now able to accomplish much more than I thought I would be able to before I worked at Foray, and I'm so grateful for my experience here in this company. The other great part about Foray is that the work you do actually has a positive impact on others. At the core of Foray is a goal to provide a solution for a group of people with a need that few companies have even thought of, let alone set out to figure out. Foray really is something special, and the experience you get working here is unparalleled.

What I wish was different

Everyone and everything at Foray is incredible. If you ever had trouble completing a task, others on the team were always willing to help or add their input. I felt like my ideas were heard, even if they were out of the range of my job description. You do a little bit of everything here at Foray, and I think that's one of the most valuable traits of not only a startup environment, but also of this company itself due to the combination of the people on the team and the company culture that the team has put into place. I wouldn't really change anything about Foray. I absolutely loved my time here.

Advice

If you don't know how to do something -- just ask. If I ever wasn't sure about anything, I knew I could easily reach out to the other people on the team. That's the great part of working in a collaborative environment. You never feel like you're alone in anything.

Summer Intern

May - September 2018 • Brooklyn Heights, NY

What I liked

Foray is an amazing place to work at! Working in a collegiate, informal environment like Foray allowed me to grow and learn very quickly. Since it is a small company, you are assigned a lot of responsibility and you are able to work alongside the founders and, in the process, you learn directly from them. Everyone's opinion matters here at Foray: my voice was heard on day 1 and I was able to tackle real world problems from the very beginning. I learn something new every day and our startup culture means that there are no two days that are ever the same.

What I wish was different

There have been a dozen places I have worked at and never have I felt so in place before. I could not ask for anything better. I would not change anything.

Advice

If you are a self-starter, hard working and up for doing things that directly affect the world, then Foray is the best place for you! You need to be confident working as a group and have advanced communication skills. Design knowledge and expertise will help you prosper.
