What is your position?
I am a Pork Marketing Intern, working on the data analytics side of the marketing division. I work to optimize customer experience with tracking tools that support our pricing and pork program.
What brought you to Zoetis?
In 2012, my brother and I created a small show pig operation and have been using Zoetis products for the past ten years in our operation. Zoetis has been engrained in my life for a long time. The diverse product portfolio and dedication to their customers and the industry is what I was drawn to and why I wanted to work here this summer.
How would you describe Zoetis’ culture?
Zoetis has a progressive, connective company culture. Everyone is constantly looking to innovate and grow in the animal health industry. To do this Zoetis has invested in their colleagues and made sure they feel accepted, valued, and a sense of belonging. The culture has made a huge impact on my internship experience. Everyone has been so welcoming, supportive and has made sure that all my needs are met.
What has been your favorite part of your internship so far?
My favorite aspect has been connecting with different colleagues across Zoetis and learning about their experience. There are colleagues on the Pork team that have been here since Zoetis’ start and some people who just started in the past year, which makes learning from everyone so interesting.
What is something you have learned in your internship?
Through all the projects I have worked on, I have expanded my knowledge on the various marketing tools and techniques that go into planning for the next year and making sure that everything on the back end of 2021 is getting done. I never realized how much planning goes into getting ready for the next year.
What has made this internship unique?
Everyone’s dedication to making sure we as interns have a good experience. It goes back to the culture at Zoetis and creating good relationships, even in a virtual environment.
