Internship Site: Hudson County Chamber of Commerce
Career Interests: My career interest is in Business (Marketing). I chose this career because I have always known that I wanted to be in the business field, but I didn’t have a specific idea of what form of Business I wanted to pursue. Through the Jersey City Summer Internship(JCSI) program, I interned at the Hudson County Chamber of Commerce which increased my desire to enter this field. I had the opportunity to verify the information of over 700 chamber members, and outreached and communicated to non-members. Through this, I was able to work with supervisors and colleagues in the aiding in the development of the company and it boosted my interest in Business (Marketing). These skills that I have acquired are preparing me to be successful in the future and the marketing industry which I desire to be successful in.
