Hi all, it’s Emily the Marketing Intern again with another internship update. I have only a few days left here at the Total Solutions office before I pack up and head back to Des Moines for my senior year at Drake University. I do however have exciting news to announce I will be staying on with Total Solutions and working remotely. I am so excited to be given this opportunity and I can’t wait to continue serving our clients and working with this amazing team. Look forward to more posts about how I will be balancing both class work and my internship.

When I started here in early May I did not know what to expect. My previous internship experience was completely remote, and I did not work directly with a marketing team. So, when I came to Total Solutions I didn’t have anything to compare it to. While I did not know what to expect, this experience has been everything I could have wanted and more. I have learned more about the marketing field than I ever could have thought possible in just 3 months. I have greatly expanded my skills in graphic design, web design, ad creation, metrics, and more.

Here is one of first socials posts I did back in May and one I just finished this past week!

I want to truly thank the entire Total Solutions team for their kindness and helpfulness this entire summer. From the very beginning, everyone has made me feel like a valued member of the team. I especially want to thank Rachel and Zach for being so helpful and patient as they taught and guided me throughout this experience. I am so grateful that I have gotten to work with such a supportive team, and I am so excited that we get to continue working together.

As I prepare to head back to Drake for my last two semesters I have so much more confidence and knowledge that will help me finish out my college experience. I am looking forward to being able to apply everything I have learned this summer in my classes. I am also looking forward to being continuing with Total Solutions. Working remotely will certainly be different, but I am confident that it will be a worthwhile experience and our team will be able to tackle any challenges that we are presented with.
