Internship Spotlight: Asia Rose DuVernay, WorkMorphis
April 13, 2022
Asia Rose DuVernay '22 (BSBA Marketing) is a Consulting Analyst Intern at WorkMorphis.
What was the process for getting this internship/job?
I originally met my boss, Emily Fabiano, through the Eller Externship program and reached out via LinkedIn to learn more about WorkMorphis. After our initial conversation over the summer, I became interested in the line of work WorkMorphis specializes in and sent in my resume and work from my portfolio. In August, I started working at WorkMoprhis and I have enjoyed it ever since.
What type of projects do you work on?
WorkMorphis is a workforce consultancy that connects business and education to prepare people for successful careers. I research and analyze the current workforce and policy conditions in our client's industries.
What is your favorite part of the experience?
In a smaller company, I get to have hands-on experience in multiple aspects of the business. I have more responsibility for my projects and have the freedom to creatively problem solve.
What do you find most challenging?
Working asynchronously in a different time zone has been a challenge, but it has helped me grow to gain more confidence in my abilities to complete my work with limited guidance at times.
What are you learning?
I am learning all of the components of a business, how to balance multiple client projects, and to be flexible when client priorities change.
What advice do you have for other students looking for similar experiences?
Never undersell your experiences and do not be afraid to speak up if you have an idea or suggestion to add to the conversation. Network as often as you can because you never know where you may find opportunities to grow in your professional career.
How has Eller prepared you for this experience?
I am directly applying real-world experiences from my classes, especially in the areas of business communications and marketing. Eller has provided many opportunities to connect with employers and teach transferable skills to apply in your future career.
