Quotes from Past Interns:
“Interning with Green Global Travel was a wonderful experience! Mary and Bret are delightful to work with, and without sacrificing my other activities and responsibilities, I gained a valuable experience learning to harness the potential of Facebook as more than a casual social networking tool. In the process, I also learned a lot about protecting the environment and the benefits of ecotourism. I’d definitely recommend an internship with GGT for anybody interested in getting more experience with social media and having the opportunity to work with some truly fascinating material!” - Margot Tuchler (Duke University)
“I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to intern for Green Global Travel for the past several months. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. With your guidance, I not only was able to strengthen my social media skills by learning the full capabilities of various social networking sites such as StumbleUpon for business purposes, but was also able to learn about effective marketing strategies such as those that I implemented on Facebook.
In particular, I want to thank you for providing me opportunities to pursue my professional interests such as allowing me to help with Public Relations assignments. All of the various strategies that I implemented on blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and StumbleUpon were greatly interesting to learn and I hope that it allowed for the significant growth of Green Global Travel. - Niranjana Rengarajan (Emory University)
“I would like to thank you and Bret for this awesome internship, I have learned a lot about social media and how different media tools can help a business.
I thought this was a great experience. It wasn’t too abrasive, I got a taste of how social media helps a business grow and I really enjoyed it as well!”.- Paige Rollison (University of Georgia)
“I recommend interning at GGT for anyone who is passionate about preserving the environment. As a social media intern, I learned how to manage various social media interfaces such as Twitter, Google Plus and Facebook. Above all, this internship was a great experience!” – Sindhu Kotha (Emory University)
“I have really enjoyed my time interning this summer with Green Global Travel. Mary and Bret provided me with great input and positive feedback with my social media efforts, and I love how I was given different social media strategies to try, from Stumble Upon to Wikipedia. I’m new to the blogging realm, and I feel that getting exposure to the different social media aspects were very helpful. What I enjoyed most, however, was the flexibility. I was in the process of moving to the Czech Republic to teach English and had sort of a crazy schedule for a while; Mary was very understanding and good about changing up my responsibilities when I couldn’t contribute as much as I would’ve liked. Overall, I had a very positive experience and would recommend it to others who are interested in trying out different social media tactics.” – Sarah Vied (Travel Blogger, Western Kentucky University Alumna)
