UNC Graduate and Former Miss EmpowHer Intern’s Journey to a Full-Time Role at Leading Media Company

“What I love about Miss EmpowHer is how mentorship and professional development are foundational to the program. You get to take ownership over your experience by taking on assignments catered to your interests. During my internship, I developed social initiatives, conducted market research, and made strategic marketing plans with a team that encouraged creative solutions because of my interests in corporate social responsibility and digital marketing. I truly appreciate the efforts Caitlyn made to center my personal development in every assignment and every coaching session. This individualized coaching came in the form of career and networking advice, interview prep, and specific skill building assignments. I am so grateful for the experiences and skills I’ve gained at Miss EmpowHer, which contributed to my current full-time placement at NBCUniversal.”
