I was at MELT for three summers, one as a melt u student and two as an intern coordinator. The people you meet and interact with are truly the best of the best in our industry. Throughout my time with MELT U, I built and fostered relationships. These relationships landed me in graduate school and landed me my first and second jobs out of school.
In the summer of 2014 after graduating from Clemson University, I participated in the MELT internship program. While participating in the internship, I had the opportunity to work on The Coca-Cola Company account, assisting in learning about and managing the ESPN College GameDay program
You can NEVER network enough. Every situation you are in, both personally and professionally, could be a networking opportunity if you put your best foot forward. You never know when a former classmate, family friend, or gym buddy could help you make a key connection to jump start the next step of your career. Many speakers from MELT U emphasized this to us and I’ve found it to be very valuable advice!
