Capri Holdings Limited (Versace, Jimmy Choo, Michael Kors)

Internal Audit Intern

June - August 2022 • New York City, NY

What I liked

Very welcoming environment meant for young minds to learn and grow within the program. The company wants you to succeed in your future career and will do anything it can to help you, even if you choose to go a different path.

What I wish was different

More in-person intern events. Due to COVID, the in-person events were very limited but were so much fun to go to.

Advice

Network. The job is meant for you to get real experience in the retail world, but it is also meant to create meaningful connections.

Corporate social Responsibility intern

June - August 2021 • New York City, NY

What I liked

The program was super supportive and allowed us to gain real work experience while also helping us develop our resumes and network with other departments in the company

What I wish was different

I wish the position had lasted longer and that it was in person

Advice

Never be afraid to reach out to fellow alumni or your network to talk about their careers if they are in an industry that interests you, because people are always more than happy to connect and answer a few questions. Also, definitely reach out and network with your fellow interns because that is a great way to network with your future industry peers very early on.

Digital Marketing Intern

June - August 2021 • New York City, NY

What I liked

It was an extremely integrative experience where I got to learn about how digital marketing works through multiple channels and affiliates, and how to analyze data to figure out what strategy we should implement next. I gained confidence in myself and strengthened abilities that I wouldn’t have been able to if it weren’t for my team and this opportunity.

What I wish was different

I wish it hadn’t been virtual, but this is due to the pandemic.

Advice

Stay curious. Always ask questions and show your manager what you’re interested in. I asked my manger a lot of questions about the brand strategy side our campaigns and ended up helping the branding team on a project!

Longer meal, it’s only 30 minutes and there’s always long lines to buy food at the food court

Sales Associate

May - August 2018 • Howell, MI

What I liked

I gained experience in the higher end of retail and what it means to cater to clients in such an atmosphere. I enjoyed the people I worked with and serviced, as well as the products offered.

What I wish was different

Although I loved working with this brand, I wish that I was more familiar with this brand prior to being hired, it would have made transitioning from a department store to a luxury brand more smooth.

Advice

Immerse yourself in your brand and gain knowledge of who you work for and why you do it. It makes small tasks worth the hassle.

To be honest I wish I did not have to drive 45-minutes everyday LOL Besides that, I love the job!

Sales Associate

September 2017 • Cincinnati, OH

What I liked

I loved the fast-paced enviroment of working here! We worked off large sales goals and were constantly pushed to learn new "Michael experiences" which helped us as associates better talk to clients and customers.

What I wish was different

Nothing really, you just have to have a thick skin during holiday months because sometimes customers are upset that you don't carry a product they're looking for.

Advice

Have a positive mindset! It makes the world of difference in your job.
