marketing intern and Student in Normal, Illinois
I am currently a Senior at Illinois State University studying Marketing with a focus in Professional Sales. My experience in both sales and integrated marketing communication has shaped me to be a well-rounded individual for my dream career path: advertising sales.
I blame my competitive nature on being an athlete with an identical twin brother who has always challenged me to be better. My love for working with people and developing relationships has helped me to acquire valuable experience as a young sales professional.
I have had multiple experiences in advertising sales including selling print, digital, and mobile application advertisements for the Illinois State University school newspaper as well as working as a Sales Intern for News America Marketing (NAM) in Los Angeles, California. Working for NAM felt like working for the school newspaper only on a much larger scale because they have a much larger product portfolio and many more sales development tools to work with. Overall, I have found that I am most intrigued with the realm of digital advertising.
