Destination Duluth: New & Improved – Now with UMD Interns!

Tucked into a cozy office on the second level of the Duluth Folk School, seven fresh-faced interns are ready to tackle the day. These fortunate youngsters will be on-staff at Destination Duluth until UMD wraps up its current semester in May 2018.

The interns’ fields of study range from Spanish and graphic design to communications and marketing, but they all share one common mission: to help grow Duluth.

Trainers & Tasks
The interns’ instructors include Jerry Thoreson, content manager for Destination Duluth, and Steve Rockwood from PureDriven. From now through May, the interns will be researching and writing blog posts, managing social media content, handling marketing and graphic design, taking photographs, and creating HD video content – all with the intent to improve Destination Duluth’s new website.

Renaissance in Lincoln Park
The new location for “Destination Duluth HQ” was chosen strategically for its location in Lincoln Park. With amazing (and successful!) neighbors like OMC Smokehouse, Duluth Grill, Bent Paddle, and Frost River, these interns will have plenty of opportunities to learn from those #CraftingSomethingGreat.

Pictured:  Six UMD LSBE Department of Marketing students and one recent graduate are serving as Destination Duluth interns this semester! They will be helping us launch a new website and spreading the message of Duluth as a Destination for Life through our social media channels!
