Did you know that two of our members from Zeta class interned at the same company this summer? One of them happens to be Danielle Kellum! Danielle spent this summer interning at Aki-Home Furniture and Home Decor as a Marketing and Visual Merchandising intern. Danielle is entering her 4th year at Cal Poly Pomona and majoring in Marketing Management. PSE props, Danielle!
"My time at Aki-Home as their summer intern has been such a wonderful blessing. I worked in the Marketing and Visual Merchandising department. I was able to get real hands on experience about the field I was studying. I was also able to apply lessons from my classes to the job. My staff were always positive reinforcers and were never hesitant to help and guide me. I've learned how to think ahead rather than always in the moment, play with many different ideas to gain consumer attention. I worked on many projects that such as the 2016-2017 Style Guide, which I book over 300 pages of products, colors and trends for the upcoming year. Although, Aki-Home made me realize that retail marketing was not the route for me, the experience and knowledge I gained from their mentoring will always be with me."
