Deepa Naraine (Business Data Analytics, Hartford Campus, '20)

 

While working in Business Insurance Marketing [at Travelers], I’ve had the responsibility of compiling metrics for our marketing assets, which provides the team with insight on how our campaigns are performing on Travelers digital spaces. I’ve also had the opportunity to create social post ideas that agents can utilize on their social media platforms and perform SEO research for new campaigns. My experience in analyzing data to support marketing initiatives has provided me with great exposure to SEO tools, business use cases, and modern analytics practices.
