Just Got Hired

Intern Tenesa Ellis

Hired at What’s For Work?

Tenesa is a student at California State East Bay, majoring in Communications.

What attracted you to this particular internship?
Having just switched my major seven months ago from English to Communications, in order to gain new skills to be more competitive in the job market, I realized how important it is to intern.   This is how I discovered, and ultimately What’s for Work?  What is so unique about What’s for Work? is that is a female centered online community that helps women with job hunting skills and techniques.  The online community has a multitude of different features, such as an  interactive interview skills builder, resume builder and online forums to connect with like minded fellow users to share techniques, tips, tricks and interact with various experts across diverse fields.

Tell us about what you want to gain from your internship?
At What’s for Work?, I am a marketing and public relations intern responsible for helping market the online community .  This internship will prove invaluable to me because I work under a CMO that has a lot of experience and knowledge in the recruiting industry.  The internship will help me learn how to effectively market across diverse industry channels.   Most importantly, I have learned how to market myself  through utilizing statistical measurable results, showing not telling what my accomplishments have been professionally to future employers.

How did help you land your internship at What’s For Work? allowed me to do an extensive search, with options such as virtual, geographic location, and industry.  This helped to cut down having to go through unnecessary search results.  I appreciated that.

Thank you Tenesa for sharing your success story!
