Olivia Marrone’ 21
Class of 2021, Major: Business with concentration in Fashion Marketing with a minor in Digital Journalism
“It was an adjustment since both of my previous internships were done in person, but since the nature of the work is digital it made the adjustment easier, and my internship advisor made sure that there were frequent Zoom meetings to make the internship feel as close to how it would be if we were working in person,” she explains. Despite the unusual work set up, Marrone believes her virtual internship has helped her improve a number of skills, including the ability to quickly adapt to change and her understanding and use of technology. These skills are useful for top quality resumes and cover letters, crucial in post-COVID professional fields.”
“Throughout my time at MMC, the faculty in the Business Department have really shaped my college experience. They were always available if I needed assistance with classwork, have been great connections for internships and because of them, I feel fully prepared to enter the workforce.”
