The 2019 TAMID Fellowship was an absolutely incredible experience. I interned for myInterview, an HR Tech Startup that sells an AI based online interview platform. As a marketing intern, I worked directly under the CMO. Each day was a new exciting learning opportunity as I was tasked with real responsibilities such as editing and publishing white papers, building landing pages, and creating marketing content for partnerships with other firms and conferences that our company attends. I have acquired new analytical skills that I can apply to my courses at Michigan.
Being a part of the startup nation means that not only did I sit next to the CMO and CEO of my company everyday, but I now know them on a personal level. Each Monday, we started our day with a video call with our office in Australia where each team member gave an update on what they had been working on. Even though these video calls were brief, they provided insight into how a startup company comes to life. Being exposed to the successes and challenges, the daily details, and the long term big picture taught me so much about how a company functions.
Having the opportunity to live in Tel Aviv was absolutely amazing. Living in an apartment building full of TAMID fellows allowed us to quickly form bonds with fellows from across the country. I am so incredibly grateful for this experience, and I know that the connections and friendships I made will last a lifetime.
