About this event
Bring your questions about marketing internships! Learn what marketing students are looking for and what marketing related businesses provide. Join our internship Q&A session to learn from our panel – two students who have interned before, one graduate who secured a job at the business she interned at, and a professor with years of experience matching businesses and interns. AMA Knoxville will ask a few questions to begin the session about their experiences and what they’re seeking.
At 12:45pm, we’ll break out into rooms in Zoom for attendee networking.
