Hello! My name is Andrea Crimmins, and I had the opportunity to be a part of Empower 2019 and to continue on with JNT as a Creative Media Specialist throughout my senior year at Kansas State University. I graduated this past weekend with a degree in Marketing, a minor in Hospitality Management, and a certificate in Business of Sports and Entertainment marketing. I am very thankful for my time at JNT and how it has fully immersed me into the marketing world.
Through Empower, I experienced working on a team that directly communicated with our client to build a new website for them. We also worked to make strategic decisions that would benefit our client most. It was very rewarding to use some of the knowledge I have gained in the classroom and apply it to this internship’s duties. I also enjoyed getting to network with other small businesses of Manhattan through Lunch and Learns, while also getting to play footgolf at Wildcat Fitness & Fun (everyone should try it out sometime)!
As a Creative Media Specialist, I have become quite the (self-proclaimed, of course) expert with Canva. It has been a lifesaving tool for this role. I have also become much more knowledgeable about social media’s best practices, web development, and have gotten to serve the needs of many of our clients which is always rewarding.
Since graduating, I plan to attend the University of Lincoln-Nebraska to pursue a Masters of Arts in Business with a Specialization in Intercollegiate Athletics. I am excited to follow my passion for sports, to hopefully start a career in an athletic department at the collegiate level.
Thanks JNT for everything!
