Digital Marketing Intern

July - September 2018 • Chicago, IL

What I liked

Since it was a start-up, I had a lot of responsibility beyond the scope of my role. I also found that I enjoyed the amount of self-learning I had to do on the job.

What I wish was different

I wish I had been more familiar with the eCommerce industry to begin with. That way I could have dove straight into my work.


Working at a start-up is different than working at an established business. You'll be fully accountable for the work you output whereas at a larger company perhaps you would be able divide the responsibility among members of your project team. You'll also be asked to do things you don't know how to do and other may not be familiar with. In other words, a start-up is a good work environment for the student that is a self-starter and proactive.
