Externship Spotlight – Morgan Prettyman, Hexagon Mining

Eller PDC Coordinator Student Stories

Morgan Prettyman is a Marketing major graduating in 2019. This winter break, she had an externship with Hexagon Mining in Tucson, AZ. 

Why did you want to do this externship? I wanted to do this externship because I am interested in a position in Digital Marketing. I also thought the mining industry seemed unique.

What did you do during this job shadow experience? I learned a lot spending the day at Hexagon Mining. We took a tour of the facility and saw a day in the life of a Digital Marketer. To end the day I was able to create a plan for a digital marketing campaign. It was also interesting to learn about the mining industry and sit in during a meeting.

What did you learn from the externship? The take away from this externship is digital marketing is a growing industry that is always changing. If you want to be good at your job one has to be constantly learning to keep up with trends and new technology. Hexagon Mining is an innovative company and I can’t wait to see their brand new office downtown.
