Supply Chain and Logistics Internship, Sarasota, FL - May 20, 2015
I was hired as operations and logistics intern which for my first week included mostly filing but eventually, as I learned the systems I took on more challenging roles. The company changes frequently, with high employee turnover and different goals every week. It's a great place to learn how the department functions and to gain competency with the IT systems used for planning and buying. I enjoyed that I worked on projects that I chose based on personally working with the other operations workers to improve efficiency. The hardest part was the low level of IT understanding or competence that some of the higher level managers have and trying to work through that to finish a project.
