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.

I accomplished...
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 learned...
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.
