Summary of Internship

As an intern at DMG America, I was able to explore the dental industry from a marketerís point of view. During my time here at DMG, I attended one of many dental tradeshows held nationwide as an exhibitor. At the trade show, I learned many different strategies of marketing and exactly how much work goes into advertising the company. In the office, I updated and entered names into the customer database of our clients using Microsoft Access. Aside from the data entry I did in my cubicle, my mentor gave me training modules every other month. During my free time, I would work on these presentations that taught me about professional dentistry, our products, our competitors, and other aspects that play a vital role to help marketers in the dental industry. Ranging from everyday tasks like data entry to seeing the final outcome at national dental tradeshows, each skill has added to my experience with business. In the future, I hope to strive in the business field and add on to the insightful experiences I have had at this internship.
