Airborne drops at both ends of the beachheads were to protect the flanks, as well as open up roadways to the interior.

Upright Communications Internship | Final Post | Entry 4

digital marketingWrapping up the Upright Communications intern series, I can safely say it’s been a semester for the books! Over the past fourteen weeks, I’ve been able to further build out my knowledge in the digital marketing industry, witness ongoing agency and client relationships, and obtain a strong sense of what an Account Manager position entails.

As the semester comes to a close and I say my goodbyes to the team, I’ve discovered three crucial skill sets I will need to bring with me into other internships and jobs.

Do Your Research
