Marketing Major
Danville, CA

This summer Jess worked at Albertsons-Safeway as an Own Brands Product Development Intern. Some of her responsibilities included developing product plans for new Own Brand shelf stable products and conducting research on market trends and competitive analysis within the plant-based foods category. She was even given the opportunity to present to the Senior Product team about market opportunities and consumer insights she found through her work.

Jess made sure to make the most of her internship experience at Albertsons-Safeway. She consistently reached out and met with managers and department heads in order to better understand the product process and learn how a new product would get on the shelf at Albertsons or their other brand name stores. She met with multiple heads of sales, marketing, sourcing, legal, product development, creative, analytics, other product managers, and even the VP of Own Brands to gain these new insights, which in turn improved her performance in her role.
