*Why did you want to intern at MG?

I wanted to intern at MG because I wanted an opportunity to hone my marketing and PR skills, while learning from an experienced group of professionals who can mentor me towards a successful career. 

*What is one thing you've learned while interning at MG?

I've learned just how important it still is to reply on subject matter experts and experienced journalists in conducting public relations plans and strategies. 

*Have you been surprised to learn anything?

I was surprised to learn about so many players in the energy and utility industry that average people aren't aware of because they are primarily B2B companies. 

*What has been your favorite part of the internship with MG?

My favorite part of the internship with MG has been learning how an agency with a friendly and supportive environment operates on a day-to-day basis. I feel like every day I'm learning a new skill or a new way of thinking that will allow me to success in the coming years of my career.

*What is the biggest takeaway from this internship as you move forward in your career?

The biggest takeaway from this internship is the sheer amount of work and dedication it takes to be a marketing/PR professional. You need to know the ins and outs of your client, their industry, major publications, all on top of the skills that you learn through school.

*Where do you want to be in 15 years?

I want to be working for passionate clients who are making a difference in peoples' lives. I also want to be in a position where I can help people that are starting their careers like I am now.
