A Day in the Life: Carli Echols

Name: Carli Echols

What is your title? Marketing Intern

What does that mean? As an intern, I assist any member of the team with extra projects they need help with. This could mean writing a press release, posting to social media, or conducting keyword research. I’m also here to learn as much as possible.

What’s your favorite thing about the Forum culture? The team. Everyone has welcomed me in and everyone works together. You can express your ideas and feel respected and heard.

What do you like best about your job? I love that there is not a single day that is the same as the one before it. Forum’s clients are so diverse and it allows me to be creative in different ways. I’m also a night owl, so I love that I can work on a project at 2 A.M. if I find myself inspired.

What social media platform do you use most often? Facebook. I often find myself an hour deep into videos of cute babies or otters. The generated thread of videos is a dangerous place.

What motto do you live by? “Treat the janitor with the same respect as the CEO.”

How do you take your coffee?
Often and with a little hazelnut creamer.

What might you find yourself doing around 10 a.m. on a regular work day? In Starbucks listening to music, drinking coffee, and getting “in the zone” on my projects for the day.

When you aren’t working what are you doing? Studying. Lots of studying. I’m in my last semester of college so my goal is to finish strong.  Outside of work and school, I love spending time with family and friends, playing with my pup, or shopping. Retail therapy is the best therapy.

Describe yourself in one word. Determined.
