Meagan is currently a senior at the University of Miami studying psychology and creative advertising. Before coming to Chartwells as an intern, she primarily performed clerical work in her previous job and had little time to pursue her interest in marketing. She reached out to Chartwells regarding its Student Success Program, was offered a position as a graphic designer on the spot, and has since been a recognized contributing member of the company.
As an intern for Chartwells’ marketing department, Meagan functions as a graphic designer for the company’s events and community outreach ventures. The opportunities of her internship allow her to perform beyond her title—there are times where Meagan will collaborate on social media campaigns, create marketing collateral for dining halls and retail locations, and create new possibilities to build revenue and engage students.
“Growing in this company has been an amazing experience. They have resources I can reach out to 24/7. The group of people, including my boss, in the internship program were there to make sure that I grow and succeed as much as possible.”
“The biggest project that I worked on here has been Burger 305, which is a retail concept I got to design from beginning to end, which was awesome. I had a ton of help along the way, but the team here really gave me a good amount of freedom in saying I could run with it.”
