The internship at Universal Wilde was presented to me through the NEDMA Direct Marketing Scholarship that I was awarded this past spring. I am incredibly lucky for the opportunity that I have had with this internship. I would’ve never pushed myself out of my comfort zone and worked in a new type of company if it wasn’t for NEDMA. I have learned numerous marketing tactics and software skills as well as my personal preferences for future jobs.READ MORE +

If there was one main thing that I have learned so far in my short marketing career (going on 5 years) its that marketers love to talk about marketing! That's not a bad thing. But my inbox is constantly getting invites to different events that I MUST attend or the FOMO will set in. I can only imagine being a marketing professional for 15, 20 , or 30 years and seeing the growth of the career path we call Marketing. Marketers are constantly trying to get smarter. To learn more about what new technology, strategies, or who is leading the pack by reaching their target audience most effectively. Of course, this results in information overload. A marketer today has to be selective in which events they attend because eventually we have to put to use all the information we are gathering! Out of the conferences, marketing forums, and webinars I have attended in 2018 there has been one so far that has really stood out. I was very impressed by the Marketing Technology Summit that I attended back at the end of January at Bentley University. This conference was hosted by Nedma, a direct marketing association that provides "information, guidance and tools you need to implement your strategies throughout every medium and channel".READ MORE +
