This spring, the VGM Forbin Web Marketing team is lucky enough to have a highly skilled and creative intern eager to learn the ropes of digital marketing and take her education to the next level, Bailey Lubben! In typical VGM Forbin fashion, we’ve got a vast set of projects and learning opportunities lined up for Bailey including social campaigns, digital marketing training series event planning, and website copywriting. VGM Forbin Web Marketer & Designer, Haylee Westendorf, sat down with Bailey to discuss her experience, career goals, and future plans. Since Bailey is such a tremendous addition to our VGM Forbin family, we are bursting with pride to show her off! Not only is Bailey a rock star intern, but she also gives great life (and literature!) advice.
Check out our VGM Forbin Intern Spotlight:
Influence and Inspiration
What are you looking forward to most while working at VGM Forbin?
Learning new and innovative ways to market digitally, and also learning more about blogging is what I’m excited for!
Who are some of the mentors who have inspired you?
My dad because all he does is work and create his own businesses, and also my grandpa because he farms morning to night no matter what. Even after surgeries, he’ll throw his crutch up on top of the tractor cab and keep going. Gloria Mueller (my boss at RE/MAX) is also an inspiration because she is very successful and incredibly driven!
What are three words you would use to describe a rock star intern?
Detailed, enthusiastic, and respectful.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
You can’t always get things right the first time, so you have to learn from your mistakes. I’m a perfectionist, so it’s hard to not do things correctly right away and have to try again. That’s why this advice was so important to hear.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I would like to be marketing somewhere, possibly for VGM. I like talking to people and always doing new things, so I’d like a job where I’m not stuck with the same things every day or at least have lots of variety with my tasks.
Just for Fun
What’s the best book you’ve read recently?
Milk and Honey.
What’s an app you couldn’t live without?
Facebook; if I didn’t post pictures for my grandma to see, I’d be in trouble.
Where would you go for your dream vacation?
Isn’t she great!?
Our team is thankful to have Bailey on board for the rest of the spring and can’t wait to see Bailey grow in her role as our Web Marketing Intern.
