I had the pleasure of being placed at The Miller Group as part of my Coro Fellowship program in Public Affairs. My experience working in marketing and advertising for the first time was extremely valuable in that I got to learn brand new skill sets and improve existing ones. I learned about branding, CRM, and creative strategy all of which I found to be applicable to myself as someone who would like to learn what it takes to stand out as a public official and/or political thought leader. The Miller Group was an excellent place to dive into projects that challenged me, to demonstrate teamwork and initiative, and to experiment with many creative ideas. Most importantly, I will miss all of my colleagues, including Renee and Gary. They are the ones who create a positive atmosphere in the office and motivate people around them to put their best foot forward at all times. That is the type of work environment I thrive in.
