I worked with the inventory garments to be sold online, organized photo shoots of models for products to add to the web pages and observed display and pricing of competitors' products. I worked hard to develop social media knowledge, skill and awareness. Overall, I worked to better market the brand to others.


Planning and executing a concert a pop up shopping event here in Ames. It was a lot of fun to plan and the patrons seemed to enjoy it too.

What advice would you give?

Just because your internship is for a small company doesn't mean you will be doing small things. I had so much fun this summer working for a small company and I know others will enjoy their experiences as well.
