Every summer, we look forward to welcoming student interns and immersing them in the world of Ramey. We know how valuable this experience can be for someone trying to map out their future. So a Ramey internship means much more than coffee runs and overdue filing. We want to make sure they get a full perspective of the work – and the fun. This year we had the privilege of bringing John Ray and Trey Spille on board.
John was diligent in learning presentation skills and joining client meetings. He was also quickly recruited as a production assistant for a U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish video, literally lending a hand as he dipped and teared the product to perfection. Just look at those fingers.
“I think this experience has truly shown what a real job is like, and how working with others is a key role in being successful. It’s made me think about what I really want to do for the rest of my life – whether it be in advertising or not.” – John Ray
Trey was asked to wear many hats during his time at Ramey. Affiliate marketer, analyst, organic social marketer, paid social marketer and programmatic marketer…just to name a few. This wide-ranging experience was all Trey needed to start planning his career path.
“My biggest takeaway was being able to get real-world experience. College can teach you plenty of definitions and how to take a test, but at the end of the day, it can never teach you how to use those skills in the actual workforce. I always thought that my passion was to work in social media, but while working as an intern I figured out that my true passion lies with analytics.” – Trey Spille
Thank you, John and Trey! We look forward to great things from both of you.
