Internship Experience at Edmentum: Chloe Roberts

Monday, August 14, 2017 -- Carly Bursik

Chloe Roberts spent her summer interning in our Marketing Department in Texas. Find more out about Chloe and her experiences at Edmentum!

My name is Chloé Roberts and I was born and raised in Waco, TX. I attend the University of Alabama where I am pursuing a degree in Marketing with a minor in Event Planning. When I am not in school or working I enjoy spending time with friends, exploring the outdoors, and planning my next adventure.

I heard about this internship opportunity from my aunt who works for the Edmentum office in Minnesota. After discussing Edmentum’s work and office culture with her I was excited to intern for an energized and innovative company. When I began my internship I immediately felt included and was treated more as a colleague than an intern throughout the summer. Each week of my internship I dug into a wide spectrum of marketing activities and projects that let me utilize classroom knowledge as well as acquiring new skills as I went along. On Mondays, I would have a 1:1 meeting with my manager to discuss what needed to be tackled that week and to check-in with me. I also had the opportunity to have a meeting with each member of the marketing team. This was significant to me and helped to open my eyes to all the directions my degree could take me.

Now looking back on my 10 weeks with Edmentum, I am impressed with number of projects I, along with the marketing team, completed. Not only have I been able to fine tune my existing marketing tool set but I also added a few new skills as well. The experience I have received through Edmentum will be invaluable as I move forward into my senior year of college and beyond.

A big thank you to Edmentum for affording me this opportunity to gain hands on marketing experience in the business world!
