So, advancements on my possible job prospects for the summer. This weekend I am at home in Waunakee, mainly because I had two interviews; one thursday March 15 and then today Friday March 16.
Wisconsin Lottery Internship: I arrived at the Department of Revenue promptly at 2:25 p.m. My interview was with a woman named Beth at 2:30. The building has such a good vibe, I would love working in a place like it. It was sooooo warm yesterday I didn’t even want to put my suit jacket on, but I sucked it up so I would look presentable. The interview was approximately an hour long. Being that the Lottery is run through the state, they have to ask the same questions of everyone. I thought I did very well with exemplifying my capabilities and making it known that this truly is the internship that I want for the summer. Working events/promotions I think will be where I want to end up. I love seeing an end product; i.e. an event. I want to have fun this summer and actually learn something while doing it! and not to mention the perk of getting to go to country fest and country thunder for FREE!!!! I will hear by the end of next week so everyone keep their fingers crossed for me!
C.H. Robinson: I had my interview with this logistics company this morning. It went well; pretty standard. However, the feeling when I walked into the building was not that of the lottery. I could tell deep down that I didn’t want this internship as much; I think that this company is amazing and going places in the future, but I wouldn’t say I necessarily would be a fit with the company. It seemed to monotone for me. I want an internship with PZAZZ! However, only time will tell with this company. They want to find me an internship that deals more with sales so they are keeping me in their mind.
Grant: I haven’t heard anything from the grant proposal; so we will see where it goes. I am still hoping to get the grant, but if I don’t obviously everything happens for a reason.
Finally, I got an e-mail for the SIAAP today. SIAAP is Summer Internship Affirmative Action Program; now this I had heard about from my friend Priya; all the internships are through the state; so I could always have a potential opportunity with something through them.
Well, I will keep you all update:)
