The most recent and appropriate learning experience that exemplifies my ability to apply the knowledge I have developed in college has come from my recent internship at Brandwithin-a boutique marketing agency. This experience not only reintroduced me to the job market, but more importantly allowed me the privilege at creating and implementing my ideas into real marketing campaigns. For instance, by the end of my internship I was able to talk directly with clients about their expectations for their advertisements, and what needed to be done in order to improve the effectiveness of their campaigns. Also, by this time some of our clients were asking for my help directly, at the chagrin of my supervisor, and this ultimately led to a full time job offer by the owner of the company after I graduate. Consequently, this experience has left me with a new sense of hope and direction because I have been out of the workforce for some time now due to my illness, and this experience has shown me the value of perseverance and determination.
