What part of your internship are you most excited about?

I am excited to acquire skills that I will be able to use throughout my entire career, and I am also excited to learn more about what makes RunSwitch such a unique and successful company.

What drew you to intern at RunSwitch?

The amount of experience that RunSwitch has with delivering effective solutions at quick rates drew me into the company. I was drawn in by how much I can learn from working here, and being the number one public relations firm in Kentucky for the past four years also really stuck out to me.

What is one skill you hope to get better at during your internship?

Throughout my internship I hope to improve my communication skills. Being able to effectively communicate is important in any field and there is always room for improvement.
