At Posture, we’re delighted to have so many talented interns come through our doors. This week, we’d like to introduce you to our intern and communications student at Marywood
What’s your name?
Gabby Santos (AKA “Good At Being Bad Yo”)
Also, you can follow my weenie dog on Instagram: @texas_weiner
Where are you from?
I am from Del Rio, Texas
What inspired you to study communications?
I took a dual credit class in high school called Principles of Marketing and Finance and my teacher at the time, Ms. G, influenced and inspired me to pursue a degree in marketing.
Who inspires you lately?
A lot of people have inspired me lately. My family always inspires me to work hard and to dream big. My former volleyball coach, Carissa, inspires me to be confident in myself and to thrive in every situation. Lastly, my best friends from home and college inspire me every day to try new things and go on spontaneous adventures.
What’s the best thing about going to school in Scranton?
The best thing about going to school in Scranton is experiencing the diverse culture, meeting amazing people, and making lifelong friends.
What is the most interesting project/client you’ve worked on at Posture Interactive?
An interesting project I’m working on is the Scranton Parking Campaign because I get to see a marketing campaign from start to finish. The most interesting client I’ve worked on is Avanti because I got to go to an event and talk about the product that we’ve created marketing around.
What is the biggest piece of advice or working skill you’ll take with you from your intern experience here?
The biggest piece of advice that I would take away from this internship is to be myself and express my opinion. When you first start an internship sometimes it can be slightly intimidating just because you want to make a good impression but the purpose of an internship is for you to be yourself and to ask questions and test your knowledge.
What would you tell fellow students who haven’t had an internship yet?
For students who haven’t done an internship yet, I highly recommend that they try and land an internship within their field of study. I have done a few internships within my field and it has helped me figure out what I want to do.
What is your ideal project?
My ideal project is one I am actually working on currently which is the parking campaign and developing it from scratch. I get to be a part of crucial market research, data collection, and data analysis.
What’s your favorite digital tool or program?
I don’t have a favorite program specifically but if I had to pick it would be Chrome.
Which Coney Island is better?
I would have to say the Coney Island underneath the bridge is my favorite one.
Ketchup, Mustard, or other?
Ketchup for sure.
of false: Doug knows more bands than anyone else in the office.
I feel like this is true. He gives me a band connoisseur vibe.
