This week I’m thrilled to welcome 12 new interns to Waggener Edstrom Worldwide — Ali Schleuter, Caitlin Pihl, Grace Wu, Kimberly Lamberton, Marqise Allen, and Tyler Petersen in our Oregon office and Brittany Bolz, Donny Turnbaugh, Jr., Farah Ahmed, J Farmer, Lindsey Hall and Ronnie Martin in our Washington office.
This is a diverse crew representing nine different universities including first-time representation from Mount Holyoke in Massachusetts, Belmont University in Tennessee and University of Montana.
In addition to communications degrees the group also represents fields of study including international relations, environmental studies, sport administration and organismal biology. They’ve worked with major brands including NASCAR, Tennessee Titans, Ford, AT&T and Starbucks and have special expertise in areas including fashion, environment, sports, science, retail management and food.
As you kick off your first week, following are three of my top tips for success. I look forward to sharing many more over the next 12 weeks. Enjoy your time as an intern, it is going to speed by faster than you can imagine!
Colleagues please tweet a welcome of your own and a tip for success to #WEinterns.
