These future business leaders have learned a lot this summer and without further ado, let’s dive into part 2 of our intern Q&A!
Click here for part 1 of our intern Q&A.
How would you describe your experience this summer?
“Overall, my experience at Dunlap was positive and I am truly grateful to have participated in their internship program. Everyone here welcomed me and the other interns immediately and made us feel like very crucial parts of the company, which is something rare for an internship.”–Owen Steinle, Sport, Strategy, Sales, Baylor University
“Overall, my experience interning at Dunlap Marketing this summer has been amazing from the leadership of Mike and Kaitlin to our weekly breakout sessions to gain industry knowledge from other professionals.”-Tammy Tran, Marketing, Texas A&M University
“I would say that I had a great experience at Dunlap this summer, I was able to do quality work while also being in a great work environment. I am grateful that I was able to work for Dunlap this summer and I believe that it is an internship that sets me up nicely for the future.”–Marshall McDuffie, Finance, Baylor University
What are your major takeaways from the internship?
“My major takeaway from working at Dunlap is that my communication skills have vastly improved. I am now able to talk to anybody and not have any kind of anxiety on the phone. Secondly, I learned a ton about being a young professional, improving my resume, building my network, and how to create a stable financial budget – which were all topics we covered in our weekly breakout sessions”-Marshall McDuffie, Finance, Baylor University
“One of my major takeaways has been improving my communication skills, especially through cold calls and setting appointments.”-Tammy Tran, Marketing, Texas A&M University
Is there anything that you have learned here that will be beneficial in your future within the business world? If so, what is it?
“One thing I learned is the importance of being involved in professional organizations. There is an assumption that when you graduate from college, leaving all your university’s programs and clubs, you will have to be “on your own” in the professional world. I learned this is not the case and there are numerous opportunities to be in an organization with like-minded people working in the same field as me, which is comforting.”-Owen Steinle, Sports, Strategy, Sales, Baylor University
“I learned the first impressions you have with others, business or social, are vital to the relationships down the road and those connections and networks can help shape your career path.”-Tammy Tran. Marketing, Texas A&M University
It’s been a terrific three months here at Dunlap Marketing! We are proud to be part of our intern’s continued growth and anxiously await to see the impact they will have on the business world. For even more on our 2022 summer interns, check out our Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn.
