I’d like to begin this month’s lead-in with a congratulations and public thank-you to Elise Brown, the LoCo Marketing Intern for the past ~8 months. Elise just graduated from CSU with a degree in Economics with a Marketing emphasis, and has accepted a full-time position as a Digital Marketing Coordinator with AZDS Interactive Group in Denver beginning in early June. Elise has been a strongly contributing team member from the very start, and grew her skills and confidence throughout her LoCo experience. Thank you Elise - you get it, you want it, and you’re highly capable - and you’re fun to be around. You’ve got a bright future ahead, and we’re proud to have had you in our tank!
Knowing Elise’s departure was coming, we posted our job ad for a part-time Marketing Communications Associate in early May. Though we’ve now had two great interns, this time we were hoping for someone with a bit more experience and who might be part of the team for longer. We used the Handshake system for posting at CSU/UNC, and did a free posting on Indeed and a paid posting on LinkedIn.
It is an interesting position to fill, as I ask a lot from my candidates in a widely varied role. This includes administrative & tech support, graphic design, writing, video editing, marketing, event management responsibilities - and more. But, we’re still small, so there is not that much of any of it - we have only the need and budget for a part-timer, but hoped to add some experience to the team.
We didn’t exactly know who we were looking for - we knew our needs, but not the needs of our potential applicants yet.
