Social Media Intern

September 2019 - January 2020 Chicago, IL
“During this internship, my digital outreach skills were refined, I learned how to utilize social media in a professional context as well as how to use the social media management platform Hootsuite, and I had a definitive say in the content we as a company produced. Very involved and hands on! Working with very kind people in an amicable setting was also a huge plus. ”
