Reflecting on Growth: Skills I have Acquired as a WINtern

Updated: May 11

My Experience/Skills I have Acquired as a WINtern

Throughout my journey as a WINtern, I have not only gained skills and knowledge that will help me throughout my professional career but in my personal life as well. At the beginning of this internship, one of the biggest goals I had for myself was to gain networking skills and put myself out there more as it is something I have struggled with in the past. The WIN community was so welcoming from the beginning so it made this process a million times easier and really pushed me out of my comfort zone to strengthen my networking skills. One of the biggest lessons I have learned through this program is to never be afraid to ask questions or ask for help. Being afraid to speak up for myself is something I have struggled with at times in the past but this program and community has made me feel so comfortable to be open and share my thoughts/feelings. In today’s job market, a strong portfolio is crucial when standing out against other candidates to future employers. This internship has given me the ability to build my digital portfolio through content such as blog posts, carousel posts, and graphic media. Being able to build this portfolio will not only strengthen my resume but also help further me in a career in the digital or social media marketing industry. 

This program has given me hands-on experience with social media marketing such as writing blog posts, getting familiar with SEO, and gaining more experiences with different platforms. I have been able to learn a lot about audience engagement and analyzing social media metrics. Overall, I have been able to embrace my digital marketing skills and strengthen my love for social media and content creation.


As a recent college graduate, I am very thankful for my experience throughout this internship program and will take all of the valuable knowledge & experience from this into future endeavors!!! I am forever thankful for the opportunity to be involved in the WIN community.
