May 30 2018 Anthony Loredo Blog Career Growth Where Are Our Centerns Now – Summer 2018 Edition In June, we kick off another summer of our internship program. As we get ready to welcome our new “Centerns,” let’s take a look at what our 2017 Centerns have been up to! We talked to a few of them that were hired full-time following their internships. Matan Horenstein, Digital Media Associate in New York Matan was a Centern on the Media Services team in the New York office last summer. He was hired on full-time as a Digital Media Associate. Centro’s Giving Tree program was a big reason he knew he wanted to be hired full-time. The New York interns organized a fundraiser for a program that gives school supplies to children in the city, and Matan had an amazing experience working on it. Matan is passionate about the intern program, and advises this year’s Centerns to reach out to people on and off their team—schedule 1:1s, ask questions, and learn from others. The door is open and it’s up to you to take advantage! Maggie Nemoy, Strategic Insights Associate in Chicago Maggie interned on the Strategic Insights team in Chicago, learning research tools and putting together research decks. After her internship, she joined the same team full-time. During her internship she learned the “Centro Way,” and it has stuck with her. Everyone at Centro is so friendly and outgoing, they changed her way of communicating and helped her relax. Maggie recommends that Centerns get to know departments outside their own and learn about what everyone at Centro does. Caroline Nugent, Analytical Operations Associate in Chicago Caroline joined the Analytical Operations team in Chicago as a Centern last summer. During her internship she learned to use software tools like Datorama, LiveRamp, and DoubleVerify, all of which she uses now in her full-time position. She loved the “snack and learns” where Centerns learned about different departments throughout the company. Plus, the trainings gave her a chance to get to know other interns. Caroline encourages future Centerns to get out there and mingle, don’t be intimidated because everyone here is nice. Soak it all in! Kelsey Brockett, Digital Media Associate in Dallas Kelsey interned in Dallas and joined Centro full-time as a Digital Media Associate. As a Centern, she learned all about media strategy and client communication, knowledge she now uses every day. Joining the company as an intern allowed her to find her place in the office and gain confidence to ask lots of questions. Kelsey wants incoming Centerns to know that they shouldn’t be afraid to make mistakes (everyone does!). She also encourages everyone to meet their coworkers, as she has loved getting to know others and their experiences. This year, we are hiring 17 interns across the U.S. and Canada.
