Amy Looney: AspenCross Financial Group

At the AspenCross Financial Group office


Name: Amy Looney
Hometown: Wakefield, MA
Major: Organizational Communication
Internship Sponsor: AspenCross Financial Group, Member of the John Hancock Financial Network


Primary Responsibilities: As a marketing intern, I work closely with the marketing manager for AspenCross and the financial advisors. I am responsible for: creating seminar booklets, town research guides for new agents and personal information packets for existing clients, as well as other small projects. I have composed Excel sheets to update client information and have done extensive market research for advisors before they enter a new market.   
Blog Entry: This internship gives me the opportunity to experience the “real work world” which we, as seniors, will all be entering soon.
It was one of my first days at AspenCross and I was a little nervous, rightfully so, when my supervisor asked me to research a new target market for an agent who was entering a new market. With my business and marketing classes I have taken, I felt comfortable to complete this job. I feel prepared to enter the workforce because as each day passes at my internship, I use concepts and ideas that I have learned in the classroom.
My responsibilities do not stop at marketing. I have been asked to proofread and edit memos for financial advisors. While doing this I could not help but think about my Business and Technical Writing class that I took last semester where I learned how to format and write all types of business memos.
I also get a sense of accomplishment when I see the CEO and upper level managers in the company using my seminar books that I, as an intern, developed and put together. This internship is giving me the hands-on experience that is essential for entering the workforce.
