So it’s been a little while since my last post and much has happened since!
The trek to Bonobos was extremely informative. I learned a tremendous amount about the company’s unique business model and relaxed culture. I saw firsthand how a showroom can serve as a marketing and service tool for a business that is primarily online. Additionally, the finding of my consulting project presentation for the NYU Langone Medical Center’s Department of Integrative Health went off to rave reviews. I believe our team presented the department with a solid marketing plan, great industry insights, and concrete next steps to improve how they operate. I then celebrated with my teammates with a little bubbly and some hors d’oeuvres. It was a great way to wrap up the semester.
Since then, I’ve started my internship at Quidsi, a newly acquired Amazon company, working in Retail. Although I’ve been there for less than 2 weeks, I already love it! The first week was orientation. Not only did I get to visit a fulfillment center, but I also got to listen in on several customer care calls. Both experiences were extremely informative and gave me a far greater understanding of the company and its operations. I look forward to seeing how this new knowledge influences the projects I work on. While I’ve only been working on my projects for a few days, I can tell it’s going to be a great summer. I’m working with some incredibly bright and passionate people. Plus, the company has an open, relaxed environment and I’ve already met with several people in senior leadership positions. Needless to say, I’m going to learn a lot. I look forward to sharing more with you!
