The INTERNal Perspective of Interactive Marketing Intern Gabrielle Bacarella

August 28, 2012

Gabrielle Bacarella, an Interactive Marketing Intern, also of previous “Petal Talk” fame, talks about her experiences interning at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM for the second consecutive summer. Her are Gabrielle’s insights in her own words:

When I entered my first year at Boston College, I had no idea what I wanted to major in, let alone pursue a career. After taking several courses, I found that I really enjoyed Human Psychology, declaring it as my major with a minor in Human Resource Management.

This is actually my third intern experience at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM. Last year, I spent time with the company’s latest brand, Fruit Bouquets. I had so much fun and learned a great deal that I came back here during my winter break and again this summer working with the Marketing department.

The part I love most about my internship is how my work is both creative and interactive. I have written a number of articles for our “Petal Talk” blog site, worked on the company’s Google+ program and our daily rankings on Google for Search Engine Optimization team. Through my experience here at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, not only have I met brilliant and inspiring people but I have expanded my skills within the marketing industry, a new found interest of mine.
