Major: Business Administration

Employer: TellStyle

Internship Title: Social Media Intern

Sarah Hendrickson is an Eastern senior who is eager to graduate and begin her career.   Last summer Sarah found herself an internship with the online  clothing retailer TellStyle.  As a social media intern, Sarah was given the opportunity to gain experience doing marketing for the company using three major platforms.  She applied her knowledge from her college career to market TellStyle using Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.  Along with using these platforms, Sarah wrote blogs for the company, diversifying her new knowledge of marketing methods.

This internship was very applicable to Sarah's aspirations for after graduation.  Her goal is to find work marketing in the fashion industry, so working for TellStyle has given Sarah some very important experience in a very competitive job market.

Sarah's advice for other students is "the sooner you look for an internship, the better." Further, she says If you need an internship to graduate, it is important not to wait until the last second because it usually takes some time to find a good one, and finding an internship you like definitely pays off.
