My Summer Internship at Relayware

As a rising junior in college, I’m still not sure what direction my career will take, but I know that no matter what I do there will always be a sales and a marketing aspect to any job I take in the future.

Relayware Partner Relationship Management

My Summer Internship at Relayware

By David Cress, marketing intern

This summer, I had the wonderful experience of interning at Relayware. I chose to go after this particular internship because I was interested in learning more about sales and marketing for a technology and software company. Then, as I researched Relayware, I became even more excited to work with a growing company tackling a significant problem – channel partner management.

This internship here at Relayware has been an enriching experience due to the content I worked on and independence the team gave me to complete assignments. There was no micro managing; they trusted me to get the job done and to do it well.

I was eager to learn from and help Relayware during my six-week stint. Before starting this job, I imagined that interns shred papers, make copies and get coffees. Instead I gained essential building blocks for my career.

From the start, I realized that the opportunities Relayware was giving me would develop my sales and marketing foundational skills. Some of these included the ability to use sophisticated software, data research, cold calling and writing marketing emails.

During my time at Relayware I have worked alongside seasoned sales and marketing professionals. This is where my understanding of the sales and marketing department really started to form properly. Specifically, I learned the terminology of the sales funnel from lead to qualified sales opportunity to sale. I also took on marketing tasks that taught me about targeted marketing, content creation and data research. The fact that I have been creating real content and doing meaningful research that actually helps in an essential company project showed me the value that marketing has in a company.

I found that the tasks and projects were not the only thing I learned from this internship. I also learned from the office culture. The people who work at Relayware are all proactive, engaging, helpful and influential. The welcoming spirit of Relayware team drove me to put in the extra mile of effort. The expertise of all of my summer co-workers also gave me deep insight into how the “real-world” works.

Sales and marketing are essential factors in any business. As a rising junior in college, I’m still not sure what direction my career will take, but I know that no matter what I do there will always be a sales and a marketing aspect to any job I take in the future.

Thanks to Relayware team I feel more ready than ever to pursue what the world has to offer.
