MarketCrest Hosted a SEO and Marketing Services Workshop for Texas and Oklahoma College Seniors

McKinney, Texas January 10, 2017 –  MarketCrest LLC recently hosted a Marketing Services Workshop that focuses on giving graduating college students the opportunity to expand their experience in digital marketing.

Scott Berry, the founder of MarketCrest and Rachel Thomas, the marketing coordinator, lead the workshop for select students from Oklahoma State University and Texas Tech University.

marketing internship at MarketCrest McKinney TX“We created an SEO and marketing services workshop for graduating college students to prepare them for winning top agency jobs,” Berry said. “Graduates today are incredibly talented, they just need a lift from executives already in the business. It’s exciting to see their classroom knowledge collide with real world applications and clients.”

Berry expands that a side benefit of the workshop is to give upperclassmen the opportunity to publish work for their portfolio. He finds this an important factor because many students graduate with no published work, and only have class assignments to demonstrate their skills.

The workshop’s structure varies depending on the participants’ needs, the fundamental curriculum includes designing and posting social media ads, writing press releases and using digital tools – like Trello, Buffer, Canva, etc.

The December participants were able to work individually, as well as a team. Katie Roberts, is a recent Texas Tech graduate; and Media Strategies major.

“It was very educational,” Roberts said. “I learned essential details regarding what skills and abilities SEO and online marketing agencies look for in candidates.”

The participants particularly enjoyed designing social media posts that promoted business, products and services.

Madison Schein, a junior at Oklahoma State, participated in the marketing services workshop to gain more experience related to her future career in public relations.

“My favorite part was practicing writing press releases, because it helped enhance my writing ability,” Schein said. “I learned about anchor texts, distributing factors and SEO (Search Engine Optimization).”

MarketCrest is dedicated to helping college students expand their experience by providing multiple internship opportunities.

MarketCrest has built a productive relationship with Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and University of North Texas communications students, who are excited to gain experience in their future careers. College students learn and experience marketing agency services through both marketing services workshops and internships.

MarketCrest Collaborates With Local University For Online Marketing Studies

marketcrest logo

McKinney, Texas based,  MarketCrest has joined up with The School of Media & Strategic Communications at Oklahoma State University to provide students with the chance to receive college credit by getting internships in online marketing.

The university states that college students have a hunger and strive to learn and use those skills in real life experiences. Internships are a great way for students to use their skills and learn more from their superiors in the workforce. College students want to be molded into what the company needs or wants for internship positions. Those in Stillwater that are interested, can learn more about the program at http://media.okstate.edu/about/our-mission.

Scott Berry of MarketCrest says, “This is the second consecutive semester that MarketCrest has collaborated with Oklahoma State and their intern program. We have been extremely impressed with the work ethic and talent of the OSU students. Our program at MarketCrest is a bit unique in that we insist on paying our interns for their work. We think it sets the tone that creativity and hard work is rewarded. We also ensure that a large portion of their work ends up customer facing.

Micah and Alexandra’s work, from this semester, is present in press releases, blog articles, infographics and slide decks for clients in 3 different states across the U.S.! Both made outstanding contributions during their engagement and will make fine team members when they join the workforce after college. It should be noted that OSU does a good job preparing and coaching their students to be successful in their assignments.” More about the company services can be found at https://marketcrest.com/marketing-services/

Interns receive college credit, samples to add to their resume and portfolio’s, exposure to what they might be looking for in a future job. With Strategic Communications being such a broad major, SMSC classes have been able to give students a number of skills in a little bit of everything in the communications field.

Those skills include Adobe PhotoShop, Illustrator, InDesign, AP Style, Garageband, Final Cut Pro X, iMovie, Microsoft Office, public speaking, WordPress, Social Networking, Customer Service, Event Planning, leadership, editing, and others.

Micah Moore, a past intern, states, “I enjoyed a lot about the internship. One of the things I enjoyed the most was the people. My supervisor was always really helpful. He taught me a lot about many different aspects of a Marketing/PR company. He always asked me what I wanted to work on and learn more about. This showed me how important it is to enjoy the people you work with. The employees make the company what it is. I got very blessed to have a great supervisor. I also enjoyed the freedom and flexibility of the job. Being able to schedule my own work hours was amazing. I know this is rare especially for a first job, but it was a good experience.” Other testimonials about the team can be found at https://marketcrest.com/testimonials/.
