As our summer winds down, mornings get chillier, our days longer, I reflect on the summer internship I spent being part of the Coyne Chemical family. This summer I had the opportunity to work at one of oldest family-owned chemical company; George S. Coyne Chemical Co., Inc. Coyne opened my eyes to opportunities available in the real world, such as the fun, exciting, inspirational, and professional world of chemicals.
Starting this fall, I am going to be a senior at Temple University working on my advertising degree (concentration in Research). I have already learned so much at Temple University that has positively contributed to my work at Coyne. Likewise, I gained so much knowledge in the last 2 months at Coyne. The skills I attained at Coyne are beneficial in sales, marketing, and build relationships. I had the fortune to learn about markets and trends in different industries, as well as creating, delivering and communicating value to customers.
Here are a couple of things I learned from my experience at Coyne Chemical when completing tasks:
– Look outside the box when it comes to ideas
-You have to love what you do, what you sell, and who you work for in order to do it well
-Time is essential and relationships are the pillars of businesses
-Be positive-without great energy, great results won’t come
-Stand out-be yourself, and go above and beyond the expected
Since my experience at Coyne, I learned that I am excelling well at marketing. Amazingly, I really love learning new things about different areas in marketing such as the research, analyzing the research, evaluating techniques, and launching projects/campaigns. In me, I find a marketer that can link the society’s material requirements and its economic patterns to its customer in a unique and thorough approach. One quote I keep in mind when I do any marketing/advertising ideas/tasks is “if there is any great secret of success in life, it lies in the ability to put yourself in the other person’s place and to see things from his point of view as well as your own” (Henry Ford).
In conclusion, I am proud and excited to say that I will be staying with Coyne during the fall as a part-time employee. I learned a lot from everyone at Coyne. Coyne has really wonderful staff. They are all friendly, informative, and encouraging. I am still learning about myself from the people I work with and the business environment I am in, but I know I am seeing a bright future at Coyne. It will be an exciting new chapter and I can’t wait to see what astonishing new things I will learn and apply.
