Greenville, S.C. (Sept 8, 2021) – Engenius, a digital marketing agency in Greenville, S.C., partnered with Clemson University‘s Center for Career and Professional Development office and NEXT, a Greenville entrepreneurial support organization, to offer Clemson’s students internships with small, high-growth companies to expand a students’ professional skills and connections to the business world.
Johann Stevenson, a junior at Clemson University majoring in marketing and financial management, just completed her summer internship with Engenius through the partnership with Clemson University and NEXT and started a fall internship in late August. During her summer internship, Stevenson learned about web design and digital marketing strategies for Engenius’ clients while also building professional confidence, leadership skills and business communication skills.
The NEXT and Clemson Internship Program was created last year to expose Clemson students to small businesses and successful entrepreneurs in Greenville so students could gain professional experience while strengthening a student’s connections to the business community and career pipeline prior to graduation. Engenius has been a long-time member of NEXT.
"Our internship program with Engenius helps Clemson students like Johanna not only contribute to the company she is assigned to, but the internship also shows her how small businesses manage day-to-day business decisions and exposes her to successful entrepreneurs that might not be on a college student’s radar,” said Chad Navis, a professor with Clemson University’s Arthur M. Spiro Entrepreneurial Leadership in the Wilbur O. and Ann Powers College of Business. “These internships not only allow students to develop valuable knowledge and skills that enhance their personal value, but they are also able to learn a lot about themselves and get a clearer sense of their greatest interests, strengths, and areas in need of improvement."
“We are so pleased with the successful completion of Johanna’s summer internship and are happy she will continue her internship into this fall with us,” said Chris Manley, CEO and co-founder of Engenius. “The partnership with NEXT and Clemson is clearly showing its benefits for everyone involved, and we look forward to strengthening Johanna’s real-world experience of digital marketing, so she is better prepared to start her career after she graduates from Clemson.”
