My name is Trey McCoy and I’m excited to join the Blue Compass team as an intern assisting the Digital Marketing and Account Executive teams. Everyone at Blue Compass has been so friendly and helpful. There’s no better place to get a taste of the Digital Marketing world than Blue Compass.
I am a senior at Simpson College, studying Public Relations with a Business Management minor. This May, I will be graduating with my Bachelor's degree. I am joining Blue Compass with previous communications experience. Last semester, I completed an internship with Capital Crossroads within the Greater Des Moines Partnership.
While at Simpson, I have been a part of the student-run PR firm, C Street Agency. This semester, I serve as an Account Executive within C Street and work closely with a few of our clients. C Street offers great experience to students as we get to work with real clients and experience agency life. I’m also an active member of Simpson’s PRSSA chapter. I enjoy attending monthly networking luncheons and workshops. Simpson has exceeded my expectations of a quality education and professional development.
Outside of Work
When I’m not studying or working, I usually stay busy. Physical fitness is a big aspect of my life. I enjoy lifting and running on a daily basis. It’s not unusual for me to complete a 6:00 a.m. workout before class or go on a long run after work.
I also enjoy traveling. Since both of my siblings live out-of-state, I try to visit them when I can. I grew up on a small family farm in southern Iowa, so I enjoy visiting new places outside of Iowa. I hope to travel international sometime soon.
I’m excited to learn from my peers at Blue Compass and get to work with all kinds of different clients. Gaining experience with all agency teams will provide me with a well rounded start to the job market.
