Congratulations to Siclinda Canty-Elliott, our January Intern of the Month!
Siclinda is one of our newest interns, but she has clearly made a big impact on the YOakleyPR internship program already. Currently an Online Marketing Intern, she will be transitioning into the Project Manager role for the marketing team for the Spring 2015 session.
Siclinda has an impressive resume to her name in the field of academia, however she has recently made a career change to marketing and project management. Since starting with YOakleyPR, Sic has worked with the Marketing Team to develop a new marketing plan for YOakleyPR’s 2015 external marketing efforts, which required her to participate in a SWOT Analysis, learn and plan email marketing campaigns using MailChimp, and work with her team to identify advertising and networking opportunities for lead generation—all before December 31st!
In her short time with YOakleyPR, Siclinda’s fellow interns have already taken note of her outstanding productivity and teamwork. Here are some of the things they had to say:
“Siclinda has generated multiple leads this month and has written thorough services suggestions for those nonprofits. She did a lot of research on area competitors.”
“Siclinda is constantly responding to other interns in an effort to combine knowledge and research on different projects.”
“I think that Siclinda has really stepped up to the plate, and is well on her way to being prepared for the Project Management position that she will take over in January.”
Congratulations Siclinda! Your efforts have paid off. You will be receiving a $25 Visa gift card in the mail, plus a little something extra to put on your new Marketing and Project Management resume. Keep up the good work!
