Entertainment Cruises, Navy Pier - Chicago, IL

“I served as lead event coordinator and restaurant supervisor. The most valuable lesson I learned from my internship was to not be afraid to ask for help, whether it was from my boss or the people I was managing. It's better to ask than to not and end up in a disaster.”

Hess - Houston, TX

“So far in my internship I have learned an incredible amount about drilling and completions, and all the steps and processes that go into drilling a well.

Through multiple seminars and trainings, I can see how having this Lean mindset can drastically change the efficiency of different processes within the business.”

Amy Cao

“Anyone can buy fashion or even have style, but to combine business and having an eye for product is something that needs to be taught. Here, they teach you how to think and act like a merchant. My role is to determine, based on previous sales as well as strategy and plans going forward, how I can allocate goods in stores in a way that will impact business.”
