Digital Communications and Web Development Intern

January 2020 Charleston, SC
“I loved that this position was remote, and I enjoyed bringing my insight regarding web development to the team — I was able to help redesign their company’s website! This was also my first time working with a nonprofit, so I quickly learned how to implement a much more humanitarian tone instead of the usual competitive tone, “Buy me now! I’m the best!” verbiage that’s used by for-profit companies. ”
