Summary of Internship

I interned at both Tweakmedia and Inmod. Most of my time was spent assisting Casey and Alan with the development of Inmod--primarily with ecommerce, the retail and buying of goods using digital technology. My mentor assisted me in understanding the concept of retail, a field that I never thought I would ever be involved with. He primarily takes care of the major parts of the business involving consulting with customers and organizing the websites. It was through my internship that I realized how much I love being in a small environment so that I’m more in touch with the people around me. I was fortunate to have had training in two fields—graphic design and ecommerce, two fields that are soon to dominate the world that we live in.
