I was responsible for...
I Assisted consultants with their appointments throughout the day. I also worked with brides as a consultant and personally sold over $20,000 in merchandise over four days. Collaborating with the stock team to ensure merchandise was organized was another task. They asked me to give the internship program a facelift by creating a training manual to be used with future internship classes. Lastly, I provided excellent customer service to meet Kleinfeld's standards.
My greatest accomplishment from my experience was being offered a job. I will be returning to New York after I graduate in May to join the team at Kleinfeld.
The greatest lesson that I learned from my experience is you never stop learning! Even up until my last day at my internship, I was learning more about the business and myself.
Advice for others...
My advice for future students is if you have a dream you need to follow it. You need to actively pursue what you want and if you work hard enough you will end up exactly where you want to be doing exactly what you want to do!
