Accomplished everything I wanted to and more

“My internship at Merck Animal Health provided me with all of the tools to feel confident starting my career. The entire team was always so welcoming and encouraged cross-functional participation to learn all facets of the business. I was able to put my knowledge from school into practice and learned so much over the course of the summer.  My favourite part about the internship was that the team really tailored my projects over the summer to the goals I wanted to achieve.”

A memorable experience

“I loved that the entire marketing team always wanted to provide me with projects that would help develop certain skills that I may have never been exposed to before.

One of the highlights was working on an email marketing campaign from start to finish. I was able to design a project for veterinarians to learn how to use social media for their businesses. It was an eye-opening and truly exciting experience to get to work with various teams from all over the Merck Animal Health division!”

The teamwork was truly a highlight for me

“What made the internship so memorable for me was that the customer engagement team took me under their wing and trusted me. They gave me a lot of autonomy in the sense that I didn’t feel I was doing typical intern work, but I was actually regarded as a contributing member for ideas and projects throughout the summer.

My internship with Merck Animal Health sparked my passion for agency work and equipped me with the experience and technical skills required for my current career in advertising.”
