Carly Cherches, a senior at Union College, reflects on her summer 2018 internship as an inbound marketing intern with Purview, a healthcare technology company and the chief sponsor of the Horos Project. Carly will graduate in Spring 2019 with a degree in biomedical engineering.
My First Day
On my first day at the office I not only got to meet the team and learn more about the company’s values and goals, but I also got to start working on my first campaign! This involved learning how to use WordPress to update the website pages and HubSpot to send emails, write blogs, and create sales pipelines. I was able to learn by doing, and see what worked well and what didn’t, so that I could better the methodology for future campaigns.
Through my day-to-day tasks, I was not only able to strengthen my marketing skills and learn more about each of our products, but I was also able to learn and observe other aspects of the company. By the end of my internship I had the opportunity to take part in the release of Purview’s newest service -- cloud storage for Horos! I learned so much from my co-workers throughout this process and was able to gain skills in product development and sales. Although I was initially hired for an inbound marketing intern position, Purview allowed me to learn and experience so much more than that.
Purview exceeded my expectations both inside and outside of the office. I was respected as a full-time employee, not just an intern, and felt that all of my opinions were truly valued. I learned so much during my eight weeks and also saw the impact that my work had on the company. I did not expect a small company to come with so many benefits and have such a great work culture. I was pleasantly surprised. Throughout my eight-week internship, we had many company outings including a boat trip to Cantler’s, an Orioles game, duckpin bowling, and my personal favorite-- weekly sailing races. My internship with Purview was certainly a summer to remember!
