Working at Vertikal – Testimonials

I had the opportunity to intern at Vertikal in college and learned web design & basic html coding from Celeste. I now write & maintain financial configurations at the State of OR.

Nicole Sollenberg

I took on a role as an intern at Vertikal Life Magazine in 2017, I now work for the University of Southampton Students’ Union as a Marketing and Communications manager. During my tenure at Vertikal, Celeste was extremely motivating and encouraging, with regular video calls to discuss progress with written articles, proofreading, and editing. I was interning virtually for Vertikal alongside a full-time job as a kindergarten teacher in China. This was all long before COVID hit and remote working was the norm – but the internship allowed me locational freedom, and an opportunity to flex my writing muscles. I thoroughly enjoyed my time interning for Vertikal – and I was proud of the pieces I wrote. I have always known writing was my passion, but Vertikal took a chance on me and helped arm me with skills that would eventually steer me in the right direction for my career path – thank you, Celeste!
