My internship was with Associated Student Technical Services (ASTEC) on the UW campus during the Fall 2015 semster. ASTEC's offices are located in the lower level of the Wyoming Union. They specialize in providing audio/visual services to RSO's, UW Faculty, and the general public.

I was responsible for handling materials and creating a new image for the company. This included a range of things from graphic design, networking with other marketers on campus, and developing marketing plans. I also handled talent buying and promotion responsibilities for a concert program hosted by ASTEC. There were so many important things I gained from the internship. Getting to see what I had learned in my marketing classes implemented in the real world was huge, and I was able to get a more in depth understanding of the concepts through firsthand experience. I also had the benefit of getting to work with other marketers and make connections there and learn from their styles and techniques.

I would love to complete another internship for this company or another one. ASTEC was perfect for me as it was fitting for the career path I want to follow, but getting to market for a company in a different field could be very valuable and help me gain an even broader perspective of marketing. I definitely feel the information I learned in the internship has had a positive impact on my education. Now I have my own real world examples of concepts discussed in class. This allows me a more in depth understanding and appreciation for the lessons we go over.

I would absolutely recommend completing an internship to other students. It's a great way to get actual experience in your field of study, while also getting class credit. It's a really great way to get a taste of what could be waiting for you after graduation, and I feel like it made me more prepared than if I would have just kept to traditional classes
