August 4, 2016


Jessica Farrar

Name: Jessica Farrar

School: Longwood University

Assignment: Marketing

Intern Year: 1st year

Describe your duties: This summer I have interned in a Marketing Coordinator position and have helped out with multiple projects. I created higher education and places of worship brochures, a statement of qualifications for a healthcare project, and updated all employee resumes with their current information. I also helped out with the social media by creating some different blogs and the intern spotlights to highlight what we are working on this summer.

How does your internship fit into your long-term career goals?: I am majoring in Management and Marketing at Longwood, and I have two prior experiences with a management position, so for my internship I knew I wanted to work in marketing. I would like to take the skills I have learned in both marketing and management to help me work towards a leadership position in a company, most likely in sales.

Describe your favorite way to spend your time outside of working this summer: I love the outdoors and anything by the water. My family just moved to a house on the James River, so I like to kayak and be in the sun every weekend I can.

Tell us something interesting about yourself: Throughout my summer at W.M. Jordan, I have also worked a second job as a manager at Q Barbeque in Chesterfield, Virginia.
