A Day in The Life of an SWP Intern
Hi, my name is Shubhangi Tyagi and I am
going to be a marketing student as at Drexel University this fall. My
interests include researching new things, playing the piano, dancing and
photography. As a wonderful opportunity to test out the profession,
Student Working Professionals has helped me gain a hands-on experience
in marketing. My usual day starts off at 9:00 am and meeting with my
mentor, Shannon. She gives me a summary of the day before I head to the
intern room and meet the rest of the team. They share insight on their
current projects and how I can contribute. Then, I log into my computer
and start my work for the day. So far, some programs I’m now learning
include Salesforce, Constant Contact and InDesign.
The days vary so we are not always bound to computer. We sometimes attend staff meetings that provide us with interesting tips for the real world ahead. Before leaving for the day, once again, I meet with Shannon about the work I have completed and any unfinished tasks. When she gives the okay, I head back home, relax and gear up for the day ahead.
