At the the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce
Name: Gina Souza
Hometown: Lunenburg, MA
Internship Sponsor: Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce
It’s always busy being a Marketing & Communications intern. My everyday activities include everything from writing and editing articles for the Chamber’s newsletter and press releases, to developing surveys and contacting members for market research. I also help market upcoming events through email blasts and postings on the Chamber’s website.
Aside from what I do on a day-to-day basis, I get the unique opportunity to attend all of the Chamber events which include informational events about topics such as health care and insurance. I also attend networking events such as Business After Hours which are held at restaurants throughout the Worcester regional area. At those events I meet business people from some of Worcester’s most prominent organizations and hear them share their stories. I also attend events like the Breakfast Club which honors companies for great achievements and milestones. At the most recent event, I event had the opportunity to meet the president of the Boston Celtics!
My internship with the Chamber is an exciting way to obtain hands-on experience in marketing and publicizing a business. I use tools such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, as well as programs that are completely new to me such as WordPress and Zoomerang. It’s a job that changes every day depending on what’s happening within the business, and I feel like I’m constantly developing my skills within the workplace. I can’t wait to apply all this knowledge to a job in the real world.
