Upright Communications Internship Introduction | Entry 1


Hi there, Emma here, and I’m happy to announce that I am Upright Communications’ intern for the fall semester! I am currently a senior at the University of Cincinnati pursuing a major in marketing and minor in business analytics. I am part of UC’s co-op rotational program and have completed several other internship experiences in various industries including market research, venture capital, and digital marketing.

I was immediately interested in Upright’s internship posting when I noticed the title “Junior Account Manager.” Not only did this sound like an incredible opportunity, but this is exactly the type of role I am looking to pursue once I graduate. I am excited to gain exposure to real clients with real needs and witness my own deliverables be implemented to improve client website performance.

Account Management interests me for numerous reasons. These types of roles are solely based on client needs, therefore your job is constantly changing and ever-evolving with your clients. As the liaison between your company and the client, it is your job to figure out what your clients’ needs are, and to maintain that crucial relationship as well. Lastly, being an Account Manager, you are working with diverse clients typically meaning you are going to be dealing with various industries. This type of exposure involves meeting tons of people, that is generally going to be different than you and think differently too.

Digital marketing is a dynamic field and I’m looking forward to being part of a nimble team that goes above and beyond to serve their clients. Looking forward to this semester!
