Mainebiz talks with student about in-state career opportunities

Mainebiz talked with Anna Peterson, a rising senior at the University of Maine, about her internship with Kennebec Savings Bank in Augusta last year that led her to consider banking in Maine as a career. “It was really cool to be running a company’s social media,” said Peterson, who interned in the bank’s marketing department. “I would come up with some ideas, and then look them over with the social media coordinator.” She also worked with the bank’s community giving director and saw the causes it donates to, and how much work that entails, according to the article. “My favorite part is the connection with the community,” she said. “It was really awesome.” Peterson will work for the bank again this summer, and is considering returning for a career after she graduates next year as a “definite possibility.”
