Marketing Internships Spotlight
Marco Primerano '16
Marco Primerano is making the most of his college experience. He traveled the world during the spring semester of his sophomore year in the College's study abroad program. In fall 2014, he gained valuable experience and real-world knowledge as a communications intern for Annese and Associates, Inc., an integrated communications firm that focuses on making connections and guiding innovations.
His internship gave him the opportunity to research trending technologies, develop a consistent social media plan to achieve a weekly quota of posts across the firm's various platforms, and draft blog posts highlighting the different ways the Internet is evolving.
Marco really enjoyed the behind-the-scenes look at social media interaction and learning about the different ways to communicate ideas and stay connected in a fast-paced work environment. He plans to intern at several marketing communication firms in the Rochester area until he graduates.
