Spring Immersion Trip Reflections: Miriam Charry ’16

Here’s a little recap of Miriam’s awesome experience on the immersion trip and how she has been using her alumnae network for her internship search!
At the beginning of March, a group of 12 CWIB members travelled to NYC for an Immersion trip. During this trip, we participated in three site visits in three different industries, some alumnae-led workshops, and a networking reception. Although this was the second CWIB Immersion trip I had attended, I still learned so much, and still reflect on it although my internship search is wrapping up.
I am personally interested in the marketing/advertising aspects of a company. One of the site visits that we did was to NYDJ Apparel, where Kate Foster-Lengyel ’99 is the VP of Marketing and Ecommerce. I had an amazing time job shadowing Kate in January through the Day in the Life program through Career Services, so when Kate agreed to host the group for a site visit, I was so excited. She explained to all of us what her role within the company is, and a little about fashion marketing and their specific goals as a company. Working on marketing activities for a fashion company would be a dream job for me, so when I applied to a couple internships in fashion marketing, I reached out to Kate to see if she had any advice or any possible connections within the companies that I could chat with further to learn more about the positions. Kate was extremely helpful and ultimately helped me in scoring a couple interviews with awesome fashion companies, truly showing me how helpful and willing to help alumnae can be when you reach out.
On the last day of our Immersion trip, we participated in a networking reception at the Roger Smith Hotel with four alumnae in different industries. I met Kelsey Hill ’04, another incredible woman who founded and owns her own marketing startup, kelsykate. After some great conversation at the reception, Kelsy suggested I email her later on to chat about marketing internships for the summer. Kelsy has given me some great advice throughout this process, and has done her best to help me in any way that she could, which, through the stress of the internship process, has been such a blessing.
The trip last month was a complete success thanks to the wonderful and helpful alumnae who volunteered to participate and spread their knowledge. Above all, looking back on the trip, I learned that the Colgate connection is always so strong, and alumnae in all industries are always willing to lend a helping hand to students, as long as students are willing to put themselves out there and ask for it. Based on the experience that I’ve had, I hope that all members will be able to participate in upcoming trips and take advantage of this network, utilizing our incredible resources and opening up new doors to as many new experiences as possible.
