As the summer continues to fly by, we are excited to introduce yet another intern at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®. Jason Swartz is interning this summer in the marketing department at our Pasadena, Calif., franchise, and recently graduated with his Bachelor’s degree in business marketing from Azusa Pacific University! Welcome to TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, Jason!
“I’m a recent graduate with a degree in business marketing from Azusa Pacific University. Following graduation, I started my Master of Business Administration (MBA) with an emphasis in organizational science through Azusa Pacific University.”
How did you hear about the internship?
“I first heard about the marketing internship through a friend of mine who actually worked for the Pasadena franchise. I also saw the internship position posted to the university job board and after taking some time to research the company, I quickly applied.”
Tell me a little about yourself
“When I’m not working or focusing on school, I enjoy anything that has to do with activities outdoors. I’m from Santa Barbara, Calif., which has crafted my love for surfing. On top of this, I love hiking, and this past summer I was able to hike Yosemite Half Dome, which was a lifelong dream of mine.”
What is your biggest take away from your internship so far?
“It is hard to pinpoint exactly one biggest take away. The thing that I have learned most in regards to the marketing internship is the amount of research and planning it takes to run a successful marketing campaign. With that being said, launching the campaign is just the beginning. Keeping up and tracking the success and areas of improvement are all aspects that I have had the pleasure of helping with during my internship.”
What are you hoping to learn or accomplish in your internship this summer?
“Growth each day would be the number one thing that I would like to accomplish. There is so much to learn that can help you grow when working for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®.”
What made you want to join the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® team this summer?
“There were a lot of reasons why I joined the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® team, the first being the core values that are listed on the company’s website. Seeing these made me very interested in the company. After taking some time to do research on the company and seeing the story behind the growth over the past 30 years, I wanted to be a part of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®.”
What has been your favorite thing about TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® so far?
“My favorite thing about working for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has been the hands-on learning I have received from the day I stepped into the office. From the general manager allowing me to sit in on the team’s weekly meetings to the marketing manager allowing me to take on new tasks each week, the overall experience has been great.”
What’s next for you?
“Looking into the future and what is next, the first goal I would like to complete is finishing my master’s program. After that, I would love to one day move down to San Diego, where I can work and enjoy the beautiful city at the same time.”
