Intern Highlight – Ria Madan
Mallory McGuinness | August 20, 2020
At HZO, protecting what matters most to you matters most to each of us. We wanted to pull back the curtain and show you how we work together to do this, so we asked a few of our interns to weigh in.
The fourth blog in this series features Ria Madan as she discusses what it’s like to be a Marketing Communications Intern at HZO:
1. What college do you attend, what is your major, and what do you hope to do with your degree?
I am a North Carolina State University undergraduate, pursuing a BS in Marketing and a minor in Spanish. Upon graduation, I plan to further my marketing skills while working for a company, specializing in either social media content or SEO.
2. What does your intern position entail? What tasks are you working on?
As an marketing communications intern, I perform various tasks such as writing content for social media and blog posts, posting content on the HZO blog, evaluating our website content and design, and making strategic recommendations about how to optimize our marketing efforts.
3. What do you like about the internship?
The best part about this internship is that it’s very dynamic! I do not have one project or task that I am constantly working on. Instead, I have the flexibility to work on a variety of projects and learn from each of those tasks.

4. What has been a challenge about working here?
The most challenging thing for me was understanding how different types of software, such as HubSpot and WordPress function so that I could better utilize them to complete my work.
4. What advice would you give to anyone interested in working at HZO in the future?
My advice to those interested in HZO would be always ask questions, be willing to learn and improve, taking initiative, and speaking up when you have ideas. Having these qualities in a workplace like HZO will allow you to excel and grow continuously as you learn new things.
