Hi! I’m Lindsay (class of 2018, Integrated Marketing Communications), and I am very excited to be interning with the Marcom (Marketing and Communications) Office this semester! I was first introduced to the team during a focus group last year, and I am delighted to have the opportunity to work alongside them this semester.
As I am earning my degree in Integrated Marketing Communications, I am very happy to be interning in this discipline. This past summer, I had the opportunity to intern at Walmart Home Office in Bentonville, Arkansas, where I worked on improving communication strategies within the Merchandising Execution department. This was an awesome experience that allowed me to see firsthand the major importance of proper communication in a corporate setting, as well as to have a taste of the field of merchandising. This semester, I am happy to be back home in Frederick and on campus exploring the role of a marketer at Hood!
As I am a transfer student and Frederick resident, Hood has been the perfect fit to enable me to reach my academic and professional goals. I deeply appreciate the dedication of Hood professors, and feel that with their guidance and the opportunities that Hood provides, I can achieve anything that I set my mind to. I am thrilled to give back to Hood through my internship, and to play a part in the execution of a fabulous new marketing plan that will aid in increasing enrollment.
I am excited for all that I will learn and gain exposure to this semester as a Marcom intern at Hood. After undergrad, I have dreams of working for Walmart or Disney doing either marketing or merchandising, but I would be just as happy to continue to be a member of the Hood College Marcom team.
