I was one of five interns chosen as a part of Canada’s inaugural #internswanted campaign in 2011. Immediately following my internship, I transitioned into a full time role within the Merchant Marketing team as a Coordinator. My day to day consists of project managing all B2B/B2C merchant marketing campaigns, most notably the Stylicity retail program for World MasterCard Fashion Week and the Priceless Toronto consumer program. I also assist with managing and coordinating marketing programs with key sponsorship properties such as Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment, and the Montreal Canadiens hockey team.
The #internswanted program opened up the largest doors for me. Through the program, I was able to make a mark for myself and eventually work full time within the marketing team of one of the most powerful brands in the world. One could even say its priceless.
