My name name is Morgan Festa, and I am a senior majoring in Marketing with a minor in MIS at Temple University. Last summer I began working as the Marketing Intern at eXude, Inc. which is a Philadelphia based insurance broker. As eXude’s marketing intern, I am responsible for creating and updating a monthly newsletter that is distributed 100+ employees and clients. The newsletter communicates important updates and alerts about the insurance industry and our company. It has been a fun task being able to use my creative and MIS skills to design the monthly newsletter from scratch. In addition, I am responsible for generating and researching all the content that is published in eXude’s social media outlets, marketing handouts, and case studies.
Recently, I published multiple case studies which highlight some of eXude’s key business attributes. At first, this seemed like a difficult task but with the writing and research skills I acquired at Fox it was pretty simple. I regularly assist in developing concepts, invitations, and follow-up surveys for seminar’s and events which are held monthly at our office or throughout the Philadelphia area.
In the past, I used my MIS skills to assist in analyzing eXude’s current technology offerings. The MIS courses allowed me to understand how different pieces of technology functioned. For this project, I researched what our competitors were offering and how eXude could stay more current in its technology offerings.
With this internship I am learning how to apply the skills I have learned at Fox to a real business setting. So far, this experience has made me excited to graduate and put my degree to good use.
When you think of an insurance broker, you typically think of a dull and boring place to work; eXude is the exact opposite of that. It is a vibrant and exciting place filled with a unique culture that makes it fun to go to work everyday. I’ve learned so much from my short time at eXude, that im excited to see what else I learn this upcoming year.
