The Mars Agency is excited to welcome our 2015 Summer Interns!  Each week the internship team will write a blog post discussing their experience and learnings working for The Mars Agency.  To learn more about our Internship program, visit the internship page.

Coming in with week one under our belts, we were excited to be back and continue our training! We spent all day Monday in Presentation Training with Lisa. To be honest, I expected the session to be long and boring, but I was pleasantly surprised at how much fun we had. Throughout the day, we had to give three impromptu presentations and from the first to the last, there was quite an improvement in our delivery. We learned everything from how to craft a story, to what to do with your hands, to how to stop using filler words (I sill need some work on this one). All of these skills will be really helpful come the end of the summer when we present our Unask.

We spent the rest of the week doing additional training in our specific departments. As strategic planners, Gabby and I learned a lot about various data analysis resources and like the true nerd that I am, I am so excited to explore all of them. I can’t wait to get to work next week and see what the rest of the summer has in store!
