Femme & Fortune is a digital platform and community that aims to empower women and turn their passions into successful businesses. As an intern, I designed Excel spreadsheets to manage online marketing campaigns while effectively driving brand awareness, engagement, and traffic to social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The company also hosts several local events throughout the year so I organized cuisine, beverage, and novelty sponsors for those company events. Additionally, I produced partnerships with business owners and motivational speakers for annual Fearless Conference, which hosts over 150 clients.
Furthermore, the other intern and I got the chance to create and host our own event during the last week of our internship. We were responsible for the room bookings, catering, and sponsors for the event as well as ensuring the event ran smoothly. By allowing us to host our own event, it really put into perspective all the skills we had gained throughout our time at Femme & Fortune. Not only did I learn how to run an event by myself, but I also used Excel throughout to organize large amounts of data. Although in class we rely on databases to store and extract information, everything here was done manually so it taught me to be more meticulous and detail-oriented.
