I remember way back in October when I saw an email from my department at Iowa State University about a Marketing-Communications Internship with Decision Innovation Solutions. I was immediately intrigued and thought to myself, this sounds like the perfect position for me! I was definitely correct and am very happy and grateful that DIS offered me the position back in November.
As a Marketing-Communications Intern at Decision Innovation Solutions, I have had the opportunity to take on many different tasks regarding our social media channels. Most recently, I have started to create a social media campaign for the economic research and contribution DIS did for the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) and the Institute for Feed Education & Research (IFEEDER).
