Student Spotlight: Tiana Soto, Advanced Marketing Strategies

Eller PDC Student Stories

CaptureTiana is working this summer in the accounts/ client services department at Advanced Marketing Strategies in San Diego, CA.

Tell us a little bit about how you landed the internship: 

I researched online different marketing companies in San Diego. I was interested in Advanced Marketing Strategies after reading the information on their website. So, I emailed the office manager directly and inquired about internship opportunities.

Please describe what a typical day at your internship is like.

My typical duties involve creating excel spreadsheets charting weekly sales for our biggest client, Mossy Nissan. I also manage our clients’ social media pages as well as take care of any projects the accounts team throws my way! I sit in on meetings every once in awhile to learn what’s new with our clients. In addition I do some receptionist duties as well such as answer incoming calls from clients and transfer them to whoever they need, send out invoices, and receive UPS packages. Besides that I just do whatever it is that the accounts team asks me to do! Every day is different for me which is something I really enjoy.

What advice do you have for other interns?

Make your mark. You never know, they might want to hire you after you graduate because you did so well! Even just having them as a contact may be beneficial to you in your future. Also, just take it all in! Your there to learn, grow, and experience the real world. The skills you learn in your internship are so beneficial to what you’re going to have to face after graduation!
