Editorial Intern

June 2019 - August 2019 Seattle, WA
“It was all telecommute, so I could work independently from home. I'd check in with my manager every so often over web call, but otherwise I worked by myself, which I preferred. It was only 12 hours a week, so not super time-intensive. That was nice, since it was an unpaid internship.”

Marketing and PR Intern

June 2019 - August 2019 Virginia Beach, VA
