Summary of Internship
My mentor Susan Taylor is the designer/knitter and I interned right by her side. She introduced me to the knitting machines and taught me how to knit by hand. I also helped Jim Taylor, the business man, who really exposed me to the business aspect of the company. I learned how to use QuickBooks and was in charge of keeping collections in order. Although this company is a very different from a ready-to-wear fashion industry, it has given me the information and experience that will hugely benefit my future in this business.
