Finance Intern

June 2021 - August 2021 Irving, TX
“I liked the structure of the program. It was a ten-week rotational internship program, where I had the chance to work on a variety of different teams within the company. I also enjoyed how meaningful the work itself was. I felt that I wasn't given busy work but, rather, work that was going to help improve the company's daily operations. ”

Sales and Business Development Intern

May 2019 - August 2019 Dallas, TX
“I loved the ability to travel across the country. As a sales intern, I was able to fly to Dallas & Odessa Texas, Charleston, West Virginia, and EatonTown, New Jersey to experience sales in different climates. In addition to being paid for all of my travel and hours learning, I was able to grab the wheel myself when my mentors allowed me to take the lead on sales calls. At the end of the internship, I had been to a week-long national sales meeting, lead sales calls at over 60 independent optical shops, networked with employees ranking as high as the CMO for a company with returns in the billions, and finally' researched and completed a 15 minute presentation on The Mobile SalesForce Application and ways that further integration of this technology can improve sales efficiency in the field and collaborative communication between both sales reps and ECPs (Eye Care Professionals).”
