Student Highlight: Class of 2021
Sales and Marketing Intern at Western Digital Corporation
“Through and through I am a people person, and I knew I wanted my career to be a social one. Someone recommended to me that I try out a career in sales, so I thought I would shoot my shot.
We helped sales and marketing reps with their work including creating leads, generating new marketing ideas, giving mock sales pitches, and researching our products and competitors.
Career services destroyed and rebuilt my resume and cover letter. They also were very helpful in preparing me for the interview with their interview prep and mock interview meetings. Organizational Studies Professor Jeff Lewis was also one of my recommendations in the application.
The company hasn’t really put much effort into climate change, so with the help of some other like minded individuals, we gave a presentation to numerous staff members describing the importance of environment sustainability. It was nice to flex my EA major like that.”
