The hardworking spirit that shines through Chrysler vehicles is also evident in Chrysler brand interns. Every summer we bring in a group of students with a passion for learning and let them experience a specialized aspect of the auto industry.
The best way to learn is through experience, so we wanted to give our hardworking interns the chance to experience the thrill of driving a Chrysler vehicle firsthand. In this new series, the Chrysler Intern Spotlight, we’ll follow several members of our team as they get behind the wheel of some of your favorite Chrysler vehicles.
For our inaugural post we meet marketing intern Jillian Draheim, who was given the 2013 Chrysler 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition to cruise around in for a few days.
Name: Jillian Draheim
College: Michigan State University
Internship Department: Brands and Marketing
Favorite Chrysler Vehicle of All Time: Any model in the 300 series
Chrysler Forward Look: What drives you in your life?
Jillian Draheim: The love of my family and the thrill of competition are the building blocks to what drives me. Undoubtedly, I want to be successful and happy in life, but along the way, my competitive nature brings me excitement, and my family’s support makes any long- or short-term goal of mine seem attainable and accomplished.
CFL: What are the first three words that come to mind when you think of the 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition?
Jillian: Classy, city, stylish.
CFL: Where did you go to show off your new ride?
Jillian: I offered to drive everywhere while I had the 300C. My friends and I rode around Auburn Hills, Commerce and Ann Arbor, Michigan, parking the car in front of our favorite restaurants.
CFL: How did the 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition fit into your lifestyle?
Jillian: The 300C had such a smooth ride, I felt like I could go anywhere no matter how far it was. I am a very spontaneous person, and having the opportunity to drive this vehicle allowed me to explore different places in a short amount of time, all while traveling in style.
CFL: What specific features of the Chrysler 300C John Varvatos Luxury Edition exceeded your expectations?
Jillian:The sound and navigation systems thoroughly exceed my expectations. It was amazing how great the music sounded. I also really enjoyed the navigation system, which was simple, effective and more driver-friendly than other systems I have had in the past.
CFL: If there were a Jillian Custom Chrysler vehicle, what would it look like?
Jillian: It would be a white Chrysler 300C John Varvatos with an enlarged front grille and tinted windows!
