While doing the Mueller Internship, Vetle worked with two business partners to help provide cost effective alternatives to training and meal planning for gyms. His responsibilities were email marketing, filming and editing promotional videos, creating animated logos, and social media marketing.
"The team of smart and creative students welcomed me with open arms and taught me a lot about marketing and communicating with businesses."
While doing the Mueller Internship, Jiho started an on-campus electronics repair service business which fixed anything from phones and tablets, to computers and printers from their office at the Center for Innovation.
"Something I've highly appreciated about the Mueller Internship is all the networking opportunities it has opened and interactions it has created for me with fellow campus entrepreneurs. I've enjoyed socializing with the interns and employees and feel like I have learned a lot from them."
