Ellie Jester (A&S ’23)

Why Promotions

While the A&S school has allowed me to take classes that align with my various interests, Promotions will allow me to develop skills for my professional passion, marketing. I am excited to dive deeply into a project over the course of an entire year and form meaningful relationships with this team of students.

Relevant work experience

Previously, I was a Wholesale Intern at Salvatore Ferragamo, which allowed me to develop a strong skill set in Excel and PowerPoint to create strategic sales materials. Currently, I run the social media planning, distribution, and campaign development at a women’s wellness organization. I was also a Summer Global Product Marketing Intern at Estée Lauder, creating competitive analyses, conducting trend/ingredient research, and developing a product launch deck.
