            Victoria Wollenberg, a Business Administration major with a concentration in Marketing, is ready to make a lasting impression on the world with her successful job experience.

            Over the summer, Victoria interned at Conveyco Technologies. Conveyco Technologies integrates appropriate material handling technologies to provide reliable solution that reduces operational costs in the supply chain. While interning, Victoria's title was Marketing Campaigns Coordinator. Her responsibilities included cold-calling or calling prospects, attending board meetings to brainstorm branding ideas, emailing clients, updating databases and coordinating company events. Victoria has learned valuable communication skills through her internship experience.

            Victoria often stops by Career Services for help and advice. Victoria first visited Career Services in 2010. "Before I found an internship, I met with the staff a few times. They helped me build and edit my resume and taught me how to construct an effective cover letter."

            Victoria had advice for students who may be looking for internship opportunities: "Keep sending out your applications and don't be afraid of rejection. It is important to get yourself out there even if you can't find anything at first. When you get called for an interview make sure you are prepared for it."

            Victoria is graduating in May 2012 and is planning on continuing her internship at Conveyco Technologies. Congratulations Victoria and good luck with your future endeavors!
