Special Olympics Southern California

Marketing Intern

June - August 2018 • Santa Clarita, CA

What I liked

I loved the purpose of the organization I worked for. It made it easy to market their fundraisers and events.

What I wish was different

I wish that I could have been a part of planning the fundraiser I marketed. There were minor details in the prizes, cost and system for collecting client information that could have been done in a more effective way, and if I had been there from the start it would have made marketing even easier!

Advice

Don't settle for "paid". Find a company that you feel you are a good fit for, and always trust your ability to work hard and potentially earn a job down the road. This internship was not paid, until I began working. They then offered me pay, And I now have a job with Special Olympics!
