My name is Robert Cornelius and I am one of the Summer ’18 interns with the Intrepid Marketing Group. I am a rising senior at Appalachian State University, where I will graduate in May 2019 with a degree in marketing. I sought out Intrepid initially because of the group of clients that they represent, but I was happy to accept the position because of the office environment and the demeanor of every employee in the office.
This is my second internship throughout my college career, but my first experience with hands-on learning in a true marketing agency. My first internship was with the Greensboro Sports Commission which offered some of the benefits and challenges I am looking for in a career but lacked in some of the marketing aspects that I feel Intrepid excels in. I am excited to work with an array of clients with a focus in sports. This internship is giving me the opportunity to become a well-rounded student in the marketing field while gaining relevant experience with sports groups. I am looking forward to expanding my knowledge of the field and contributing where I can to the fantastic quality of work that Intrepid already provides to their clients.
