Treon is an incoming junior at Washington State University, working toward a Bachelor’s in Management Information Systems (MIS) and a minor in Economics. His past work includes building the School of Biological Sciences website at WSU and working with Cascadia Consulting Group last summer.
Here is Treon’s story about interning with the Pro Marketing Team:
In June, I joined the Whitepages Pro Marketing Team as a Pro Operations intern. My tasks range from taking photos, building icons, and researching prospective contacts for sales outreach. My favorite project has been taking photos for the Whitepages website, including everyday meetings, happy hours, and the office space (see below!). Through this experience, I was able to meet more Whitepagers, including people from other departments and business units.
While working at Whitepages, I’ve gained skills and values that I can use for future jobs. I’ve become more proactive, communicative, and efficient. I also learned to OWN my projects—simply holding myself and others accountable to deliver the highest quality work. Also, my studies in MIS have helped during this internship because I had experience in creating Excel documents and forms.
The most memorable moment of the summer was attempting to solve the puzzle room mystery at a team building event with the Marketing Team. This was my first experience with a puzzle/escape room, and we almost solved it! I had a great time working together to figure out the pieces, and in the process, got to know my team well. My favorite intern event was the scavenger hunt throughout downtown.
I chose Whitepages for my internship because of the people, and because I love analyzing and configuring data to find a solution, which happens to be what Whitepages specializes in. Overall, it has been a valuable experience that has better prepared me for my future career.
Treon joined us, along with fellow intern Mimy, through the Rainier Scholars Program, who we have partnered with for several years to find some of our stellar interns! Check out our previous blog post for more information about this as well as our Summer Intern program.
Treon shared some photos he took around the Seattle office. No doubt this intern has many talents!
