Event Marketing Intern

June - August 2021 • Melville, NY

What I liked

- I felt I was doing meaningful work, rather than just “intern” busy work. The work I was doing was equivalent to the work of full time employees and that truly made me feel empowered as an intern. - I was always kept busy which made the days fly by. - Even though it was a remote internship, I met with other employees/interns multiple times a day via Microsoft Teams which made me feel part of a team and less isolated. - Throughout the course of the internship they had multiple meetings with all of the interns to discuss useful skills such as interviewing, how recruiting works, resume writing, and more. - They provided free lunch through GrubHub for an Intern meeting, they sent us a "Welcome Package" at the start of the internship, and they provided me with a laptop. - Overall, the work environment at Henry Schein this past summer was a very positive and supportive one.

What I wish was different

- I wish it could have been an in-person which was not possible due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Advice

_ One piece of advice I would share about my experience is to not be afraid to ask questions. In the beginning of the internship it can be stressful as you are getting a lot of new information. Especially when it comes to summer internships, you do not have much time for onboarding and getting used to how your team operates. Whenever you are confused, it is so important to ask questions and understand that no question is a "silly" one.
