Where will AMA be this summer?

April 23, 2019

 

 

As the Winter 2019 semester comes to a close, AMA UM-Dearborn's Executive Board members have been applying, interviewing, and securing a variety of internships and jobs. Through our experience with AMA, we have gained a multitude of skills that we intend to bring to the workforce in the upcoming months. Over the semester, we have learned a great deal about marketing, digital marketing, leadership, teamwork, professionalism, communication, work ethic, initiative, and how to be flexible, just to name a few. 

 

Due to all these skills we've gained during our schooling and being a part of AMA, several of us have been provided wonderful opportunities to expand our knowledge and work for great companies over the summer. We thought it would be a good idea to highlight those who have secured an internship/job with the help of their participation in AMA:

I will be coordinating a team of interns as they navigate various projects having to do with economic development and community building.

 

How has AMA prepared you for getting your internship and working it?

 

AMA is prominently displayed on my resume, and with a position that is related to community building, it was important to my employer that I have marketing and networking skills. Furthermore, I’ve been able to develop my LinkedIn by working with some very smart people in AMA, which shows that I am a far mature and serious candidate than I would otherwise seem. Finally, AMA has worked with small businesses in the past. Having this experience is valuable because it shows off a variety of skills having to do not only with what we learn academically at the College of Business, but soft and relationship management skills that are developed through experience.

I believe a huge part of getting my internship was because of the experiences I have had in AMA within a few short years.
