How do you connect with your team since everyone is remote?
The Respiratory Marketing Team has done a great job keeping an open line of communication for me to ask questions and keep me in the loop. Along with having daily meetings with the entire team, I have regular check-ins with my supervisors where they make sure I have the resources and support I need to be productive and complete my projects. Everyone that I met so far has been extremely friendly and willing to help. I know they are a quick chat or call away if I need them.
Any tips to share on working remotely?
The two strategies that I have for staying productive are keeping a routine and having a dedicated space to get work done. I always make sure to use lunchtime to actually step away from the computer and take a proper break. Additionally, having a dedicated workspace allows me to minimize the distractions that come from working at home and keep myself organized.
What are one or two projects you’re working on?
As a Product and Digital Marketing Intern on the Respiratory Marketing Team, I help with direct-to-patient advertising for the Spiration® Valve System. In just my first few weeks, I have helped with numerous projects spanning from conceptualizing a postcard mailer that physicians can send out to their patients and helping set up virtual webinars and roundtable discussions. One project I am very excited about is being able to interview patients and develop written testimonials for the Spiration® Valve webpage.
