Nadia's Story: Marketing Internship in New York
This is Nadia!
Nadia, currently studying Arts & Design at the University of Michigan Stamp School of Design (Class of 2023), undertook an internship at Edisen (formerly known as Chimney Group) during the Summer of 2021.
What were your responsibilities during your Marketing Internship?
I had the opportunity to work as a Digital Marketing Intern for the creative agency, Chimney Group, last summer 2021. Chimney delivers full production post-production and production services for a vast range of industries from entertainment to advertising.
As Chimney was still starting to grow and develop its marketing team, I was able to step in at the right time, help with whatever marketing efforts were needed, and work closely with leaders at the company. This ranged from doing social competitive analyses to developing their social media strategy and content calendar.
I was able to join in on production meetings, collect whatever content/assets were completed, write copy, and ultimately, go live with their latest projects, awards, and news.
What did you gain from this experience?
Additionally, Chimney was in the midst of a rebrand (now Edisen), so I had the chance to contribute to the redesign of their slide decks and branding. My time this summer was extremely valuable as I gained so much exposure to many different areas of a creative agency.
Through listening in to the production side of things, strategizing social content alongside international colleagues, and using my creative capabilities on their rebranding efforts, I got such a rewarding, hands-on experience that I will be able to translate into any future career.
How did ABI support you?
Without ArtBound Initiative, I don’t think I would have had the confidence and insight before starting my internship. They provided all the guidance necessary to make me feel prepared to work at such a talented agency.
ABI program covered all the professional development skills that I needed to be aware of to start my professional journey.
