Logan Margolis has always had an interest in marketing and a love for music, demonstrated through his marketing and management majors in Whitman and minor in VPA’s Music Industry program. This summer, Logan had the unique opportunity to combine all of his passions as a sales intern at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Ohio.
As a sales intern, Logan worked directly with the manager of sales to help operate the facilities rentals program. He attended various events that the museum hosted, including parties, weddings and meetings, as well as networking events and professional development workshops. Logan was also tasked with redesigning the website and marketing materials for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. “I got to interact with professionals from all different parts of the music industry, gained experience working in a professional work environment, and got to meet awesome people, including the bands Phish, New Politics, and Weezer,” said Logan.
Back on campus, Logan keeps himself busy at Whitman as a front desk assistant for the Whitman Career Center, greeting students, visiting recruiters and answering any questions that they may have. He also holds leadership roles in a number of student organizations including the vice president of university relations and promotion for the American Marketing Association, brother and social media co-chair of Delta Sigma Pi, and lead peer mentor for the Waverly House in Whitman’s IMPRESS program. Finally, Logan is also a Whitman Student Ambassador, responsible for providing tours of Whitman to prospective and admitted students and their families.
These experiences outside of the classroom have offered some of the best learning opportunities for Logan during his time at Whitman. “In addition to networking and social relationships I have gained from these opportunities, I have really grown professionally,” explains Logan. “There are so many skills that cannot be taught in the classroom, and Whitman does a great job to make sure business students get exposed to these skills through clubs, internships, IMPRESS and more, in addition to our normal coursework.”
Following graduation, Logan plans to attend law school, where he will use both his knowledge of business and the music industry to pursue a career in entertainment law dealing with intellectual property, copyright and contracts. “I know how important legal implications are to everything that is done in business,” explains Logan. “No matter what I end up doing in life, having a background in business will only help me.”
