Major: Business Administration


Employer: Spyder/American Painting Specialists


Internship Title: Marketing Intern/Sales Representative


Zach is a senior who completed two internships while at Eastern, a feat not many students can claim. At Spyder, a ski apparel company, Zach assisted their marketing team with promotion concepts, product ideas and partnership opportunities. Zach says he learned to "think outside the box" when developing suggestions for the aforementioned business aspects. As a sales representative at American Painting Specialists Zach was in charge of creating and distributing promotional flyers. He also engaged in personal selling in door to door and scheduled appointment settings. In doing this, Zach bettered his advertising abilities working for a small business while gaining confidence in selling to consumers.


Both of Zach's internships relate to his career goals as he aspires to work as a businessman in the marketing and sales field after he graduates. Zach's advice to his classmates is to complete as many internships as possible so that you can figure out what it is that you really want to do.
