Responsibilites Summary:

During the semester, I worked for the marketing team at Computer Aid, Inc. I was responsible for transferring content from their old site ( to their new site ( They bought a template that already had styles in it. I transferred the content from the old site and put it in to this new template. I had to reorganize some pages because the styles were different. There were also updates that were requested by my supervisor or other people on the team that I incorporated while I was working on the site. After I finished transferring the information from the old site, my main responsibility was to implement new ideas on the website (new pages, forms, etc.) and to manage the site in general (making updates, testing it, etc.).
