Personal Journey #3: Interview Process

For this week’s addition to the weekly mini-blog, I want to introduce the interview process covering all the members of the Witmer Group. To kick off this new format, I thought it would be best to get to know the author (me) a little more in-depth. 

Here is my interview and a deeper insight into how my internship works and what exactly I do.

Q: What drew you to Witmer Group initially?
A: I heard about Witmer Group through my father and knew I had an interest in marketing through digital platforms. I knew I wanted to get real-life experience while in college and working with the Witmer Group team has given me that opportunity.

Q: What jobs do you perform for Witmer Group?
A: At Witmer Group I am the communications coordinator which means I both create and promote content for a variety of customers. I am currently in charge of the mini-blog series which documents my experience on this team and the different situations I have encountered here.

Q: What do your day-to-day operations look like?
A: My day-to-day consists of promoting content on Instagram for clients through Instagram stories. I then go on to draft the mini-blog series and begin interviewing the team. I contribute to video projects that come up, as well as join the WG team chats.

Q: What is your role in Witmer Group?
A: I am the communications coordinator here at Witmer Group.

Q: What does your life look like outside of Witmer Group?
A: Outside of Witmer Group I am the average University of Texas sophomore. I attend football games and love to cheer on the Longhorns in everything they do. I am taking classes to achieve a degree in Corporate Communications and I hope to continue to use my marketing and communications skills in future jobs. I also work as a lifeguard in the summer and teach swim lessons for younger kids to learn the basics of swimming.

Q: Tell us about you individually. What are some of your interests and hobbies?
A: When I’m home, I love spending time with my family and friends. I love going on drives and listening to music in the summer heat. I enjoy being active and playing volleyball with my sister. Going to the beach is always one of my summer favorites, and in the winter you can find me skiing or play in the snow with my dogs.

Q: Where are you located now?
A: I am currently in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania right outside of Philadelphia. I attend college in Austin Texas, but I spend my breaks here with my family.

Q: How has the Witmer group allowed you to grow as a professional?
A: Witmer Group has allowed me to gain insight into the business world’s ins and outs while still being in college. I am getting a leg up and gaining valuable information on how to deal with customers, work with a team, create content for a client, and how to communicate effectively. I am learning how to be more professional and will enter the business world more prepared.

Q: What is your favorite part about working for Witmer Group?
A: I love the tight-knit team. This small team creates a family feel and I always feel like I can turn to these fellow members to get personal assistance to get the job done. I feel like I have many mentors to show me how to grow into a professional.
