I must admit, after graduating from a grueling four years of college, my first priority was to leave Michigan in search for the perfect job. Like many other young skeptics of the job market here, I was weary of sticking around the area, waiting for something that would never come. So, then I decided to put all my efforts into searching for a position in the Detroit area. Since I majored in communications and focused on public relations, I knew I could find something.
So, here I am, interning for Quicken Loans working on web marketing and social media. I've been here almost three months and I love my job. Aside from the amazing people and atmosphere I get to come to everyday; I've learned so much in the world of free business. I'm currently working on growing SEO (Search Engine Optimization) affiliate community for link building, content syndication and blogger relations. I get to research and build relationships with bloggers to exchange content and engage in social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. I also work on reputation management by helping to manage our online client reviews.
I love the fact that I'm able to dip my feet in every aspect of social media here, because it keeps everything new and interesting. This company encourages idea sharing and trying new things, which I think is really unique. I'm also a contributor to our Diff Blog and am working on Quicken Loans online TV doing some reporting. We also have the opportunity to get involved with the community on local events that we help with.
This constantly changing, fast paced atmosphere is something I thrive on and perform my best under. With the recent move to the Compuware Building downtown, there is much more excitement to come and I cannot wait!
