“The small office setting allowed me to get to know everyone better which made it easier to make professional relationships. Everyone in the office was extremely helpful whenever I had a question and they would also take time to teach me both basic skills as well as the more complicated tasks. The things I was taught will become useful in any future job, such as Excel and HTML. I also enjoyed most of the tasks I was assigned because they relied on the reading and writing skills I learned as an English major. I also learned a lot about the book publishing world and the book world in general through the projects the company took on. As an intern here I helped everyone in the office with their own specific tasks so there was variety in what I learned as well as different types of work throughout my time on the site. ”
