Internship Title: Regional Marketing Representative

Kyle, a Business Administration major interned for Mohegan Sun's regional marketing department, with two other Eastern students, this summer. His responsibilities included assisting the marketing manager in sponsorship and promotional events, maintaining superior customer service during events and attending regional marketing events.
            Though Kyle is familiar with team work from his participation on the Eastern Rugby team, he has learned the importance of team work in a large organization. He has also learned how marketing skills and customer service play into one another to achieve success in a business. Kyle's enjoyment with his internship at Mohegan has opened his eyes to a career in marketing. His hope is that upon graduation the experience gained from this internship will help him land a job in the marketing field.
            When asked what advice Kyle would give other students who would like to complete an internship he said. "Honestly, do something that you enjoy. Forget about the pay check and focus more on what your day to day activities are. If you hate work you're going to watch the clock rather than benefit from the experience."
