Describe two or three successes your company/your intern has achieved during your program so far.
Anna-Lena has helped us with countless important client projects. From working events with unparalleled professionalism to making sure media trips and client visits go smoothly, she has successfully collaborated on several agency initiatives.
What are some of the skills that you've learned from the intern during this program and how you might apply these skills and learnings in your work environment?
Prior to coming to New York, Anna-Lena worked at a Berlin luxury hotel that is also one of our agency's PR clients. We have a strong and long-standing relationship with the hotel, but having Anna-Lena at our agency has given us unique insights about the inner workings of the property. Because of our work with Anna-Lena, we are more in tune with one of our clients.
Share examples of how you've learned more about another culture and how you've shared U.S. culture with your intern.
It's been interesting to hear how a Berlin hotel office is different from a New York media relations office. Anna-Lena has adapted seamlessly to our environment but shared great perspective on how the office styles differ.
What are three of the most memorable things you've experienced during this program?
Having Anna-Lena work with us has been fantastic because she brings a strong work ethic as well as unique perspective to MMG Mardiks. When we brainstorm new ideas, she provides an international perspective. In addition, because she has worked at luxury hotels, she brings a very strong background in high-end service to client events. Finally, Anna-Lena's solid work ethic helps create a strong example for our other interns to follow.
