As you can see, there’s a lot of activity on the intern blog lately, and that is only a small taste compared to the action that’s been happening in the office. There are so many big things being worked on, the Interns and I have decided to purchase one of these for the office,
so that we can utilize every available moment of the day.
Like many people these days, my success in the recent job market has been less than ideal. As a result, I chose to utilize my down time to improve my resume and make myself standout more to potential employers. In my quest to accomplish that, I stumbled upon the opening at Bamboosk8. At the interview, it was obvious that the internship was going to be much more than making copies and fetching coffee. The program has been methodically organized and tailored for developing us into a goal oriented, proactive, and forward thinking, business weapon.
In a true eco-friendly business, “closing the loop” is a critical step in maximizing value and sustainability. From this internship, I expect to take away a clear understanding of how to close the loop of communication between all of the departments in a business (sales, pr, manufacturing, marketing, etc.). That is, how to effectively communicate the important information through each department and back again, to derive progress within the industry.
There is going to be a lot of hard work ahead, but I’m looking forward to the perks as well. After all, this is a skateboard company; if we’re not having fun, then we’re doing something wrong.
