Jessica completed her 4-month internship with Webbirght in December 2012. During her internship, she learned about inbound marketing by completing 16 online courses through the Inbound Marketing University and working on assignments that included writing blog article for Webbright. "Thank you [Lamees] for the opportunity to work with you! I learned a lot and will be applying it in the future," said Jessica.

After graduation, Jessica started working at The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond. "Currently, I am the an intern in the Meetings and Event Planning department and in hopes of a permanent position at the end of the internship. I love it so far! Everyone has been so welcoming and helpful," said Jessica.

I wish Jessica, and expect, a successful and bright future. Congratulations Jessica! I'm proud of you!

I am proud of all my interns and always love to hear their updates and recent accomplishments. One of my first interns, a Bright Star, is Brent Trotter. Brent earned his degree from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with B.S in Advertising, Minor in Communications, Marketing & Entrepreneurship. He landed a dream job and started working for Ogilvy, a large advertising company in Chicago. When recently touching base with Brent, he shared that "I passed the 1-year mark at Ogilvy in January. Gaining experience and trying to learn more everyday in and out of the office. Working to transition into the strategic planning department--which has been the goal from jump street. I'm also looking to apply for grad school sometime this year."

Congratulations Brent, and best of luck with all your future plans. Keep me posted with your all your terrific accomplishments.

Sincerely,

Lamees Abourahma
