传染性热情

当您想到传染病部门时,营销可能并不是想到的第一件事,但是当涉及到吸引人的内容时,这是实习生Tessa Chilton想到的第一件事。 Chilton是商学院的初级市场营销专业学生,今年XNUMX月开始在UofL传染病学系实习。

“我的正式头衔是市场营销和传播学生助理,”奇尔顿说。 从第一天开始,Tessa就为该部门进行了一系列内容开发,包括设计新闻通讯,研究传单和赞助信。 “我在市场部由三人组成的团队中,这意味着很多工作要按我的方式发送!”

泰莎·奇尔顿(Tessa Chilton)最初是UofL的艺术与科学专业的未定专业,但后来发现在商学院,她可以学习运用自己的创造力并将其应用于专业领域。 “我想找到一种职业,可以将自己的战略思维与创造力相结合。 营销感觉是一个非常自然的过渡。”

With the help of instructors like Henrietta Pepper, Tessa knew that she wanted to pursue a career in Marketing. “I took her [Pepper’s] Advertising elective in Fall XNUMX, and it exposed me to real-world projects, business connections, jobs in marketing… I felt like I learned so much about what it means to be in marketing and business in general.” Tessa made a real connection with Pepper—one which continued after her class. “I posted about my internship on my LinkedIn profile; she was the first to send me a congratulations message. This gesture meant so much coming from someone I have so much respect for!”

It’s one thing to be able to excel in learning theory and best practices in a classroom setting, but it can be a whole other thing to apply that knowledge in the real world. “I think the biggest surprise at my internship has been the number of meetings I get to be a part of,” says Chilton. “My supervisor always invites me so that I can stay in the loop. It has been helpful to participate and see what’s going on in other areas of the division.”

Chilton understands how internships offer a meaningful bridge between the classroom and the workplace. Her time with the Division of Infectious Diseases has been a proving ground to learn and grow in the ways that have given her the confidence and experience needed to be competitive and marketable in the job search. “I am so appreciative of the Ulmer Career Center and the College of Business Career Fair last semester. I feel like I made so many great connections, and it is the reason I have my internship now.”
