I have various responsibilities, some of which are performed through the duration of my internship, while others are short-term and project-based. My duties have allowed me to understand how issues such as workplace stress, depression, or addiction can negatively impact employees’ productivity in their organizations. Through my daily interactions with the counselors who provide assistance, I have learned about these issues, how they affect employees, and how to assist in alleviating them.
As an intern, my initial responsibilities included: mailings for consistent communication with international students, analysis of excel spreadsheets, and follow-up letters to high schools. As time progressed, my responsibilities heightened and my voice within the office became more valuable. I used my marketing and communication skills to develop an international strategic marketing plan and also had the opportunity to directly communicate with prospective students at several college fairs and high school visits.
