In early 2020, I was thrilled to accept an opportunity to join LogicGate as a summer marketing intern in Chicago. I was excited to move to Chicago and work in LogicGate’s downtown office. Just a couple months later, it became apparent that the COVID-19 pandemic would disrupt businesses and close offices around the country. Because of this moving to Chicago didn’t work out, but I am grateful that LogicGate quickly shifted the program to a virtual internship and provided me with a great experience.
In light of the pandemic, the LogicGate team has a virtual stand up meeting each morning to stay in touch. “Zooming” into my first morning standup, I was warmly welcomed. The team is comprised of creative and talented marketers who work closely together. I was thankful they brought me into the fold and assigned me challenging and meaningful projects.
In just two months, I:
- Created a new filtering method and design for the Logicgate.com Resource Center to make it even easier for website visitors to navigate content
- Researched Google snippets to find specific methods to gain higher placement in Organic Search results
- Updated the way LogicGate stores and tags content to make it easy to find and use for internal sales and marketing teams.
As I reflect on my experience, I am amazed at how much I learned about GRC, business tools like Google Suite and WordPress, Search Engine Optimization, and so much more. I really enjoyed working on projects to drive more website traffic and engagement, and, most importantly, I learned the power of effective communication and teamwork. I felt so lucky listening in on internal marketing team meetings. Each team member made me feel welcomed and encouraged me to contribute ideas. It was inspiring to be a part of a team that executed its first virtual user summit (Agility 2020 ) and launched a campaign and brand refresh to introduce the Risk CloudTM to the world.
I am confident that LogicGate has a bright future. Every member of the LogicGate team works hard to provide customers with the best GRC software and service solutions. I am extremely grateful to have been a part of this talented team and strong company culture.
