Dyana Wing So - KEF Intern

Dyana Wing So

Creative Strategist at Gold Front

“I didn’t intern with KEF because I knew I wanted to be a digital marketer. but because I wanted to get a front row seat working on real projects with clients -- something that’s hard to do when one is ironically trying to get a foot in the door to start! Many of the skills I learned with KEF are applicable to the adjacent fields of strategy, marketing, communications, and consulting I was interested in. Not only did I gain perspective on how client projects are conducted and managed, but I also got to try many different tasks and even own a few deliverables that I can reference in my portfolio. I noticed that I was more confident continuing my job search after interning with KEF because I could speak directly to fresh projects I worked on. I also had support and mentorship from Nick along the way (who remains invested in my development after KEF -- something that’s rare and deeply appreciated)!”

Marketing Analyst at Wayfair

“Had a great time interning at KEF, where I learned a lot about digital marketing and client management. In particular, I had the opportunity to not only be exposed to all areas of digital marketing but also worked on high-impact projects with several of KEF’s clients. From this, I learned a lot about relationship management, which has served me greatly at my current job - where I often have to work with key stakeholders across teams and leadership levels.”

"King Edward First is a great place for people who want real work experience in digital marketing. I learned a lot from Nick and Karina about search engine optimization. They're kind and patient. They're willing to give new tasks to you, so you could learn many different aspects of digital marketing from working at KEF. I will definitely recommend people who are talented in marketing to work at KEF."

Wenting Ao

King Edward First Intern

"Interning at KEF was one of the best internship experiences I ever had in my studenthood. KEF values interns’ career development, and it provided valuable training to really help me build up my future career. While I was at KEF, I learned both hard and soft skills. The experience with KEF opened my door to digital marketing, and I have taken the knowledge I learned to develop a full-time job in the US. I was mentored, trusted, and appreciated. I will highly recommend KEF’s internship program to any students who are interested in marketing at school."
