Please welcome our newest Digital Marketing Intern, Claire Bushkill! Claire is a senior at ASU with a passion for marketing. Learn more about her from our interview below.
Tell us a little about yourself! Where are you from and what's your story?
I was born in Springfield, Illinois and lived there until I was 18 years old. I have one sister, she is 2 years older than me. I came to Arizona when I was 18 to attend Arizona State University. I soon discovered my passion and that is when I changed my major to marketing.
How would you describe your personality in 5 words or less?
Sarcastic, curious, motivated, organized, and reliable.
What could we find you doing outside of the office? What are your passions?
I am a TV show fanatic. So, outside of the office you can find me curled up in my bed catching up on shows or watching Jimmy Fallon. I love hanging out with my friends, which usually consists of trying out new restaurants or cooking and watching movies.
If you were a kitchen appliance, which one would you be?
I would probably be a refrigerator because I hate being hot. Also, they are very useful!
If you were reincarnated as an animal/drink/ice cream flavor, what would it be?
I would be Baskin Robbins Gold Medal Ribbon ice cream. It is my favorite ice cream of all time and I would eat a generous amount of it at any time of the day.
If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would it be?
This is no surprise to my friends and family, but I would want to meet Jimmy Fallon. He is so funny, is always having the best time on set, and never fails to make me laugh. EW!
You just won a million dollars, what is the most irresponsible purchase you're going to make?
I would purchase a ticket to travel the world and stay at 5 star hotels. Maybe one for a guest too.
What's your favorite YouTube video and why?
“Friends” is my favorite show ever. I watch it every night. Though the show never fails to make me laugh (even after seeing each episode hundreds of times), the bloopers will always be my favorite part of the series.
On a serious note, what are you most looking forward to learning from StringCan?
I am excited to expand my marketing knowledge beyond traditional marketing. I am looking forward to becoming better at writing and being creative, as well as learning a lot more about digital marketing.
What will clients enjoy most about working with you?
I think clients will recognize my eagerness to learn and my ideas that contribute to their success.
What do results mean to you?
To me, results are the end product, whether it be successes or failures. I’m looking forward to analyzing results and providing recommendations so clients can meet their goals.
What is your proudest accomplishment and why?
My proudest accomplishment is moving thousands of miles away from my family to Arizona and knowing no one. It has allowed me to learn more about myself, become more outgoing, and has given me the chance to meet so many new people that have given me several new opportunities and possibilities.
