"This summer, I'm working in Chicago as a Summer Associate for the NPD Group, which is a market research company that provides data-driven confidence to give their clients a winning advantage in the marketplace. I've had the opportunity to work on Client Development with the Food and Beverage Consumption team. The main focus of my internship has been assisting in creating the food industries staple report on consumption behavior in America, that is distributed to clients to uncover opportunities and grow their businesses. This internship has given me incredible experiences to learn more about NPD and the rest of the market research industry. It's been an amazing experience thus far, and I can't wait to see what the future brings me!"

"Shalom! This summer I am on the TAMID fellowship and working at a startup in Tel Aviv. The company I am working for is called CastPlus. They are a podcast marketplace that connects brands with podcasters to create podcast advertisements. Now I know what you all must be thinking, “Who even listens to podcasts these days? Isn’t that so 2006?” Throughout my time at this internship I have learned this is not true at all and that the podcast industry is actually on the rise. I am happy to suggest some shows to anyone who wants to start listening to podcasts!"

My project is focused on implementing new technology that will streamline ACLIVITI's consulting process. I'm incredibly excited to see the impact my project makes on how they do business!
