Loyalty Campaign Planning and Management Intern

May - August 2019 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

I liked that there was several opportunities to network with different departments and individuals in the same department but in different roles. I truly appreciate my manager's efforts in ensuring that I was getting the most out of my internship experience, being that it was such a short period of time.

What I wish was different

I wish the internship program was at least two weeks longer because I feel as though the first three weeks of the program are to get acquainted with the processes and jargon pertaining to the role and by the time I actually learned and was able to apply what I've learned, the program was nearly over.

Advice

I would definitely say to take advantage of the resources with the experience as much as possible. After graduating from college, there won't be as many opportunities to gain so much experience, learn about different career paths, and work on projects that you have plenty of guidance and training for. Internships are for learning and applying yourself so make sure to utilize the space to its fullest potential.

What I wish was different

I would have liked to have spent time at multiple properties. There often was not much sales work for me to do and I would end up doing housekeeping

Advice

Make the most of it! The director of sales and I got really close & she took any opportunity possible to help me learn.
