"How was your experience working for a startup?"
For the Fall 2016 semester, I interned at Technically Media, a tech media company, as an events + marketing intern. Working at an intimate startup challenged my content creation skills to speak to a new audience as well as strengthened my multitasking skills as I wore many hats.
As the events and marketing intern, I assisted in creating event marketing campaigns. NET/WORK, Technically Media's technology jobs fair, isn't like the rest. The environment is relaxed. Guests are able to network without the stuffiness and nerves overbearing them– and that's what I wanted to convey. I wanted to speak to the pain points job applicants have but approach it in a fun way.
Technically Media hosts tech job fairs across different markets. To help build promotion and credibility, I created compelling content for first-time and experienced attendees to engage with. Including testimonials as marketing collateral not only helped build credibility but creates excitement for both recruiters and attendees.
