InternCLE podcast Episode: 020 – Lauren Reed – Sixth City Marketing
Lauren Reed studying at Ohio University – incoming Senior – Journalism and Strategic Communication with Minors in Marketing and Retail Fashion.
Sixth City is a boutique digital marketing agency in Rocky River Ohio that has clients across many industries.
Sixth City found her on LinkedIn, this is her second summer with Sixth City. Last summer she was the only intern. Last summer she worked on clients’ social media initiatives. This summer she did similar work for the agency itself.
Lauren thought she would study business first and she didn’t find her passion there. She enjoys psychology and writing. The Journalism and Strategic Communication’s major worked well for her.
After completing her sophomore year, she wasn’t intentionally looking for an internship. But once she interviewed, she immediately engaged with the culture at Sixth City. The environment at the office displayed their laid-back culture, with life sized cut outs of funny characters. The birthday celebrations around the office are also very creative, playful and fun. Many of the staff are Ohio University Alumni as well. Lauren enjoyed the experience and the people enough to return.
Maximize Your Intern & Entry Talent ROI - Date: August 22, 2019 - Time: 09:00 AM -- 03:30 PM
More and more employers are struggling to find the right people to join their team. And the pain is increasingly acute as baby boomers retire and young, college-educated people don't necessarily see Northeast Ohio as their post-college destination. Further, finding workers with the same experience as retiring baby boomers is virtually impossible. The talent gap can be avoided if employers focus on filling their pipeline – finding the right workers and developing them as needed. A formal internship program is the best incubator of talent for your future workforce and a key retention strategy that will also help you to gain a competitive recruiting edge.
Facilitated by national expert Dr. Robert Shindell, you can expect a highly interactive workshop that will transform your internship and entry talent hiring and management practices!
