Summary of Internship
As an intern at Qualia, I gained exposure to the business field and the account management department. I worked with the Customer Success team, which is responsible for maintaining strong ties with their clients and management of sales. I learned many new terms that related to the advertising and marketing field. Some of my tasks were to take screenshots of ads that were running, finishing up wrap reports, updating campaign trackers, looking for more contacts to whom Qualia would be able to sell their data to. In order to update campaign pacing and information, we used multiple platforms such as AppNexus, Salesforce, DBM, etc. Even though Qualia is a start-up company, it is well reputed and is growing rapidly. Interning at Qualia was an amazing experience for me because it allowed me to see the inner works of the account management department.
