Lindsey Wagaman spent her summer interning in Rogers, Arkansas, with Kraft Heinz, putting into practice all she has learned from her marketing and supply chain management majors.

From her hometown in Topeka, Kansas, Lindsey came to college aware that she wanted to study marketing. After taking a supply chain management course during her sophomore year, she discovered a passion for the subject and the ways in which marketing and supply chain management complement each other.

“Throughout the past year, I’ve realized I have a passion for innovation,” Lindsey said. “New product ideas, technology and finding new ways to tackle traditional thinking have been topics I’ve been particularly interested in.”

Lindsey discovered the internship at the Fall Business Career Fair. After researching available positions, applying on Handshake and enduring three rounds of interviews, Lindsey landed the job.

She was attracted to the company by the passion that she recognized in the Kraft Heinz employees and the ways in which they were acknowledged for their dedication to hard work.

Once she began the job, her coworkers helped her learn and succeed, which greatly enriched her experience at Kraft Heinz. Lindsey’s coworkers’ openness toward her enabled her to have all her questions answered, network with other businesspeople and attend meetings with executives.

Lindsey had gained valuable experience prior to this internship. Since July 2018, Lindsey has been an intern at Modthink Marketing as a content marketing strategist.

“My internship at Modthink Marketing has been the most beneficial step I’ve taken in my career prior to this internship,” she said.

She has learned the importance of account management, strategic planning, communication, and teamwork which she showcased in her position at Kraft Heinz.

Not only has her experience at Modthink Marketing allowed her to be more successful in her internship, but Lindsey also credits Walton College with helping her get to where she is.

“There’s no doubt in my mind that I wouldn’t have the opportunities I have today without the help of the Walton College, and I’m incredibly thankful for the amazing people who have helped shape my journey,” she said.

When she’s not focusing her energy on her responsibilities as an intern, a Leadership Walton member, a Walton College Ambassador, a S.A.K.E. marketing team member, or an Alpha Delta Pi sorority member, Lindsey enjoys volunteering at the Fayetteville Animal Shelter and participating in Taco Tuesday with her friends.

As she heads into her senior year, Lindsey offers this piece of advice to incoming students:

“Now is the time to be curious and take advantage of as many opportunities as possible. Some of the most impactful lessons I’ve learned have been from attending events I hadn’t originally planned on going to, or experiences I didn’t see myself having. You never know what you will or won’t like without trying, so utilize the resources available to you, and never stop learning.”
