DBM Intern Success Story

Bryan Wesson - RED Intern
Bryan Wesson

My internship with the Department of Budget & Management (DBM) was an amazing experience.  As an Intern with the Recruitment and Examination Division (RED), I was able to sharpen my skills and gain professional experience with developing the State’s brand and social media presence.  Under the guidance of tenured professionals, I was provided the autonomy to approach issues and apply creative solutions.  The assigned projects required me to channel my creative side, when using Photoshop to make designs and develop social media strategies.  I was able to apply my degree in marketing to work experiences and projects; essentially, this was where the “rubber met the road.” 

As an intern responsible for Social Media content and website analytics, I was challenged by the demands and strict deadlines for each project.  Although the internship was a temporary position, my professional growth was exponential.  The time I spent brainstorming, collaborating, and communicating with the RED team provided professional experience which could not be obtained collegially.  This experience made me feel I was truly a part of a team who played an integral role in developing the vision of the department.

I graduated from the University of Baltimore with a major in Business Administration and a minor in Marketing. This internship allowed me to demonstrate my work ethic and innovation.  Ultimately, the opportunity led to a full-time position with the State of Maryland.  If you really want to work for the State, an internship is a way to demonstrate your knowledge, skills and abilities.  This internship was more than rewarding, it played a pivotal role in my professional growth and development and for that I am grateful.​​
