Julia Schwark, Digital Marketing Intern

Symposia Labs recently added another member to our intern team! We’re welcoming Julia Schwark as one of our newest digital marketing interns. We sat down with Julia and asked her a few questions about herself and her role at Symposia.

Tell us a little about your background.

My name is Julia Schwark, and I am a summer intern at Symposia Labs. I am originally from a small town on the east side called Fraser, Michigan, but Hope College brought me over to the west side of the state. I am currently a junior pursuing a major in Business with a marketing concentration and minors in German and Studio Art.

What is your role at Symposia Labs, and what makes you excited about it?

Being the newest addition at Symposia, my role is still being defined. During my time here, I will be working with each team member to learn their roles and help with various projects. I am looking forward to tackling a project of my own. The Symposia team has been incredibly helpful and welcoming, and I am excited to be a part of it.

What interests you in the world of digital marketing?

I have found that marketing ties together my interests in business and art. Digital marketing requires creative and strategic thinking to plan and problem solve. This makes every day different and keeps each project unique. Even though I am a new addition to the world of digital marketing, I am excited to continue learning and exploring this field.

What’s an interesting fact about yourself?

My love language is food. I love to cook, bake, decorate, you name it. It is fun to see a good meal and a great dessert bring people together with laughter and conversations.

What are you hoping to get out of your internship during your time at Symposia?

Experience. I have been led towards a marketing track, and I would like to learn more about it to figure out if it is the right fit for me. Symposia has been very helpful in allowing me to explore the different positions across the digital marketing field.

What’s important to you in the workplace?

I appreciate having a creative space to work in and an environment that welcomes both collaboration and independence.

What’s your best advice for people looking to enter the digital marketing field?

Well, since I am just starting, I am always looking for advice. The most helpful advice I have been given so far is to stay on your toes. Digital marketing is fast so in order to keep up, it is important to be flexible and adaptable.
