I was responsible for...
Merchandising Analyst- I was in the boys 8-20 Active office and was in charge of ruling weekly/daily sales reports for me team. Along with that I was given three projects to complete: competitive shopping, best seller, and a final strategy project. I was also able to attend any vendor or product development meetings my team was going to, and was able to give my personal input on the coming Spring 19 lines.
My greatest accomplishment was presenting my final strategy project to upper management and truly seeing how much I have grown in my merchandising skills throughout the 10 week internship. Also getting a full-time offer was a great way to cap off a successful internship!
I truly learned day to day tasks a merchant carried out, also what it entails to do a professional job. I learned the importance of time management, the importance of doing quality work, and how to effectively communicate with others.
Advice for others...
Kohl's has a WONDERFUL internship program and is one to definitely take a look at. It was an incredible 10 weeks and one to get involved in.
