Back to School!
I can’t believe how fast the summer has flown by! When Karen and I chatted last summer about a possible internship, I was hopeful that she would remember me the following summer. I’m so grateful she did! Public relations and Marketing is what I want to do when I graduate, and the experience I gained this summer is invaluable.
I learned so much this summer. Karen told me I would learn about agriculture and the feed store business in addition to marketing. Frankly, I didn’t think there was much to learn, but boy was I wrong! What an education learning about which feeds that are suitable for different animals to the effect of the drought on hay and food prices. Who knew this city girl would be able to name 8 different horse feeds by the end of this experience. Besides meeting and learning about the customers Red Mango Marketing represents, I picked up many new marketing and media related skills that will assist in future jobs.
So long to the weekly staff meetings and the team at Red Mango Marketing! I will miss working with the wonderful folks and bouncing ideas off each of you. Special thanks to Karen for the opportunity you have given me. I have learned more than you will ever know and have enjoyed every minute of this internship. You have showed me what it takes to operate a business and the dedication you have to this company is inspiring. When I am out on my own I will never give less than 110 percent because that’s the work ethic you have and have instilled into me these past three months.
So with a brain full of new knowledge and a very heavy heart I write this goodbye post. This experience and Red Mango Marketing have a very special place in my heart, and I will never forget this summer. It’s time to head back to school and apply some of the skills I have learned.
