There is additional help and insight at Paulsen this summer, thanks to three interns who are focusing on media planning, graphic design and account service.
James Dykes is an advertising major, marketing minor at South Dakota State University who is interning with Paulsen media planning this summer. James is from Tea, South Dakota, likes playing guitar and scheduling a solid rotation of eating and sleeping.
“The work makes the Mondays seem like Tuesdays,” James says. “The work continues to make me want to come in everyday; also the people that work here are pretty great too. It’s exciting because it feels like you learn something every day.”
Brooklyn Nordhausen will be a senior this fall at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, finishing her B.F.A. in graphic design. She’s from Wauneta, Nebraska, an agricultural community in southwestern Nebraska. She enjoys the outdoors, hunting, fishing and taking photographs of rural life, which led to her starting her own photography business, Brooklyn Ann Photography, five years ago.
“My internship at Paulsen allows me to combine my artistic talents while advocating for agriculture and the outdoors, which is a win-win in my book,” Brooklyn says. “Paulsen is a fast-paced agency and being able to intern in this type of environment is a rewarding experience.”
Tyler Meints graduated from the University of South Dakota in May with a bachelor of arts in communications degree. He grew up in a military family who eventually settled in Sturgis, South Dakota, the place he calls home. Tyler has spent the first months at Paulsen supporting the account service staff that includes data collection, researching client competition and analyzing their digital presence as well as helping with various Kubota-related projects.
Outside of work he tries to spend as much time outdoors as possible, with a passion for snowboarding, canoeing and camping.
“My experience at Paulsen has been unlike any other, and a lot of that is due to Paulsen’s highly collaborative environment. It’s rewarding to work at a place that strives to support and promote the future of agriculture, especially when considering the impact farmers and ranchers have on the well-being of our global community.”
