How Did You Learn About This Opportunity?

I reached out to local people throughout the community who worked in corporations who could possibly hire an intern. The biggest problem was finding a paid internship because of the economy. My contact was a well-known person throughout the community and he knew a lot of people so I contacted him to see if he heard of any possible internships. He immediately got back to me with an opportunity for which I could interview . I was persistent with the company and I eventually got it. Persistence and having a drive every day is the only way I secured this internship.

Tell us a little bit about your experience.

The corporation that I work for is quite dynamic and it represents the future of sports and military. This company could eventually be as well-known as Under Armor or Nike, so it is amazing to see all the inter-workings of a company from the start-up. My tasks change every day and I love it because I don't sit in a cubical.

Academically, this experience has given me more knowledge about the skills I have learned in school and has given me the opportunity to apply these skills to the real world.

How did this experience impact you academically?

Academically, this experience has given me more knowledge about the skills I have learned in school and has given me the opportunity to apply these skills to the real world. The job requires multi-tasking at all times. I really enjoy this aspect of the internship because it requires me to constantly be creative and proactive, which is a lot of fun. There are many deadlines for the release of products which requires strong communication skills and teamwork. My whole major is focused on communicating with others, so I appreciated this opportunity to apply these basic fundamentals in a specific field to solve actual problems. I love my major and the teachers who helped me succeed in the field so far.

What are your career goals or plans? How did this experience impact them?

My career goals and plans are to hopefully continue working with this corporation when I graduate, and if not, to apply to other companies. This experience will look great on my resume and will translate to a wide variety of fields and companies. I have impacted this corporation by helping in the release of products and managing people in the process. I am confident that I made a strong contribution to this company, especially by taking a leadership role in the warehouse.

Would you recommend this experience to other liberal arts students?

Yes.
