Matthew Keenan, a talented Marketing Intern at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, reveals what surprised him about his internship this summer and the impact this experience will have on his future:

“When I first started my internship at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, I expected to be doing menial marketing-related projects all day. But that wasn’t the case. I was given the responsibility of conducting in-depth marketing assignments, centered on canvassing customer comments about the products they received. I’ve also prepared parts of the marketing weekly report and worked on competitor analysis. I would not have known how to do most of my tasks here without the help of my amazing and personable managers and mentors. They truly have made me feel comfortable every day, offering advice on anything I need to prepare me for a career in marketing.”
