Digital Marketing Intern

June - July 2021 • Cincinnati, OH

What I liked

When I first came to TQL for my internship, I was a little nervous at first because I didn't have any experience in a corporate setting. To my surprise, the environment that has been cultivated at TQL could not have made it any easier to transition into a corporate environment. Everyone is extremely professional while also taking the time to get to know you and give a genuine interest in your learning and success. While I was only there for a short amount of time due to other obligations, I would recommend TQL to anyone who is willing to be challenged but also rewarded for their hard work and dedication.

What I wish was different

During my time initially as an intern, I was unfortunately only able to work at their HQ for a little over a month due to another internship I had at the time. While I learned so much about the company, the industry, and my field of study, I wish I had more time to learn a lot more of the ins and outs of a professional setting. If I had an entire summer working at TQL HQ, I know I would have gained so much wisdom that would allow me to thrive in any professional career I chose to go into.

Advice

Be a sponge. Absorb as much knowledge as you can and let those lessons serve down the road in your professional as well as personal life. Logistics isn't an industry that many people may understand or seek out, but the tools that TQL can give you to be successful helps everything fall into place. You can learn a lot about how to carry yourself in a professional environment, how to work on a team, how to be disciplined in your work, how to navigate conflict, and so many other things. Whether you choose to intern/work with TQL in the future is up to you, but from my personal experience, I wouldn't be who I am or where I am today if not for my time at TQL.

What I liked

What I wish was different

Advice

Be ready to work long hours. Management was extremely unorganized. There is a reason why their turnover rate is over 80%.

Financial Analyst Intern

May - August 2020 • Cincinnati, OH

What I liked

I was challenged on a daily basis and learned a lot more than a typical summer internship. They did not give me pointless tasks but instead taught me what a real financial analyst does on a daily basis. All my fellow coworkers were very helpful and great people.

Account Executive (Transportation and Logistics)

June 2020 • Cincinnati, OH

What I liked

The atmosphere, the culture, the competition, the rewards (gift cards, yeti's, breakfasts, lunches, etc), the fun, the family orientation

What I wish was different

the distance from home

Advice

When you're feeling stressed or like you want to give up, remember what motivated you to start in the first place and just keep pushing. The reward will be worth the time it takes to get there; everything worth having is worth waiting and working for.
