Blog Entry:
Rehabilitative Resources Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation specializing in adult foster care and autism support. I was fortunate enough to be accepted as an intern in the marketing department of RRI. Before my internship began, I had very little real world experience as a marketing professional; I knew working in a professional atmosphere would provide me with the experience needed to jumpstart my career after graduation.

 

I work directly for the Marketing Director, who is my supervisor and mentor. The marketing department for a not-for-profit corporation is very different from for-profit firms because the budget is typically much smaller. Because of this, I have gained a vast amount of knowledge on how to advertise on a small budget. I have gradually been given more responsibility, and most recently have been designing new fliers and brochures to be mailed to potential clients and donors.

 

RRI has a unique organizational structure; it has individual business functions, but for fundraising projects personnel from each function work as a team. I assisted on the March Wine Tasting committee which was a great experience.

 

RRI is a “work hard, play hard” culture. I am given various tasks to complete throughout the day, but my supervisor keeps the office attitude light and enjoyable. I am very happy to be a part of the marketing department at Rehabilitative Resources Incorporated.
