What was the best part of your experience?

The best part of my experience was the immense responsibility and trust that the company placed upon me. I was able to engage in tasks that made a real impact on the company and also contributed to my professional growth. One of these tasks included sourcing, interviewing, and hiring a candidate, from the beginning of the process to the end, for a Service Desk Analyst II position that the company could not fill for four months, prior to hiring me. Another amazing aspect of this experience was creating a business solution proposal for employee engagement and presenting it to upper management.

The network of connections that I have made at this company are ones that I will take with me throughout my professional career

How did this experience impact you academically?

This experience impacted me academically because Labor Studies and Employment Relations is part of my minor, so it gave me a great background in what I would be learning in my studies. A lot of the concepts that I have come across can be directly connected to what I did this summer during my internship; there was a large impact on my education that certainly made it more interesting. This experience has made me even more excited about the opportunities that I will continue to come across in my academics.

How will this experience impact your career goals?

This experience will impact my career goals in many ways. Firstly, it allowed me to have a first-hand view of what the world of Human Resources is like. Being a Psychology major, I was not entirely sure if this was the career path I wanted to take; after being in this internship I am very sure of my decision and extremely excited to continue in this field. Additionally, I gained some lifelong skills that I feel I could not have gained without this internship and the responsibilities that they gave me. Almost every single thing I did during my internship had a real impact on the company. Along with that, my company, Superior Group of Companies, was very impressed with my work that summer; although it was not expected, they decided to keep me on as an intern working remotely throughout the year. The network of connections that I have made at this company are ones that I will take with me throughout my professional career.
