GCC Business Administration major Emma Rueter used her skills as a photographer and designer during a Small Business Development/Marketing internship at Se-Tu Yoga and Retreat Center in Brattleboro. Thanks to a lead gift from Greenfield Savings Bank to establish the program, GCC offers students internship opportunities—whether they are recently out of high school or already have significant work history—to provide them with the tools and resources they need to prepare for work in their chosen field of study.
“I was really happy to be using my skills to be creative, coming up with my own designs to best promote Se-Tu’s image,” Emma says. Her experience was meaningful and substantive and included such responsibilities as product and service marketing; business development and operations; connecting with existing businesses and setting up meetings to pitch Se-Tu’s ideas for future collaborations and designing promotional materials and photography.
When asked what about her internship was most fun, Emma responded: “Being a part of the onwers’ Emily and Harmeet’s dream for Se-Tu Yoga and Retreat Center and seeing everything become real for them and just being a part of the excitement and ideas that were constantly flowing.”
