Careerfield: Marketing and PR
Ben hit the jackpot by working at one of the top PR and Marketing firms in the world during his summer internship. At Edelman, Ben was in charge of the daily media coverage for their clients in addition to reaching out to publications for byline and feature opportunities. But what is work without a little play? There's a first look at the amazing Sagrada Familia and more of Gaudi's amazing work. Ben and his fellow GE Barcelona interns have their weekly "fam meetup" at their favorite local pub, Cocovail. Make sure to check out Ben's #TakeoverTuesday to see the beautiful architecture, the quaint work life, and gregarious nightlife in Barcelona.
When asked about his Global Experience, Ben had the following advice:
“Do everything. My only regret from this experience is not doing or exploring enough. I had a blast getting immersed in the Barcelona culture and lifestyle. I spontaneously decided to go with a travel group to Running with the Bulls a day before the trip started. Bought my ticket on a whim and was boarding the bus to Pamplona 12 hours later. It is experience where I stepped outside of my comfort zone and it turned out to be one of the most memorable experiences of study abroad experience. It's best to look back at an experience and be proud that you did it instead of regretting that you didn't! ”
