JBKnowledge Intern Insight: Olivia Rascoe
My name is Olivia Rascoe, Class of 2013 from Texas A&M University, and am now one of the newest members to the JBKnowledge Intern Program. I currently assist the Marketing Director, Liz Welsh, the Executive Assistant, Emmy Anderson, and the Administrative Director, Jennifer Heninger. This was an exciting week as we welcomed five additional interns on board and had a successful ‘Intern Orientation’ to get to know one another as a great launch into our assigned projects. Having started a month beforehand, I was able to provide support and training in getting everyone settled into the current office the past few days.
JBKnowledge is also anticipating our big move in the coming weeks to the new office and we have been working diligently to make this a smooth and exciting process. One of my projects this month is to aide in overseeing this transition. In addition, I have been privileged to start learning in depth what marketing for a company that provides services to enterprises globally truly encompases. My hope is to build upon existing skills I possess from this experience in order to lead up to a career in the marketing field. Constant exposure to new knowledge, either by making connections through the professionals I meet or traveling to unique places (one of my most loved hobbies), is one of the strategies I use to fuel personal growth. In this transition period of another school year coming to an end, peers relocating for jobs, beginning this new and educational internship, as well as decisions that affect the future surrounding me everyday, it is extremely important that I, and anyone else in the same position, take the time to think about constant growth.
To focus on that this week, I took the time to read “Go Pro – 7 Steps to Becomings a Network Marketing Professional” by Eric Worre, who is a high income ‘Network Marketing Professional’, public speaker, as well as a consultant to those interested in breaking into multi-level network marketing. He provided me with great insight into the importance of building strategic relationships and marketing products that you believe in. I am thrilled to have the chance to use this advice within my internship at JBKnowledge and work with others who have this same mindset about the products we are developing to provide the best service possible while also enjoying what we do on a daily basis.
