Makayla Reer: April 2017 Intern of the Month

Congratulations to Makayla Reer on being named April's Intern of the Month. Makayla interned with Pentair as their Product Marketing Intern. She is currently majoring in Business Management and Health and Risk Communication here at Ashland University.

Throughout her time at Pentair she was responsible for reformatting price pages which involved her going in their old catalog through Excel and combining all the products into one document. After her project was complete, it became much easier to locate things throughout the catalog. Reer said that it was eye-opening to see how important it is to keep files updated, to ensure that clients are able to find the correct distributors.

"My internship helped to prepare me because it gave me a well rounded experience. Being that neither my major, or minor is in marketing, this experience helped to make me a more well rounded future business professional. The projects I was given to accomplish helped me to realize a lot of the background work that goes on in business. Understanding what "background work" is, will help me to understand when other departments give me updates, and also help to qualify me for more jobs."

Makayla learned a lot from her internship, and she recommends to students considering internships to "go out there and get one. The experience is unlike any other. Even if you don't get the internship you applied for, you still can get the interview experience. The internships will help to make you better marketed when it comes to applying for your future full-time careers"
