I loved how the Katama team genuinely cared about my career goals and catered my internships to ensure I achieved those goals. I truly enjoyed the variety of the work I was exposed to-- I wasn't stuck doing one project the whole summer. Instead, I was able to explore all aspects of a marketing agency to learn where my interests and passions lie. The Katama team was extremely helpful with goal setting, resume building, and consequently set me up for success in the future.Sam Borjeson, Babson 2022
