Summary of Internship

Every Thursday, I have the unique opportunity to gain an experience in the middle of New York City instead of in a classroom setting about a topic I truly want to learn about. As an intern at HOBO, I do many things like take phone calls, setup studios, and make sure that each client is treated to the utmost respect and made felt at home. Sometimes I work on cleaning up a database. With the database I make sure that everything is up to date, especially client’s contacts. Whenever work is not given to me, I try to help out other interns with their work. During my time as an intern, I learned various things like communication skills and making sure that the company is running smoothly. With everything I have done at HOBO, I realized that the way to keep company flowing without and hitches in the way is by making sure that clients feel welcomed and that the database and studio should be kept tidy and up to par. The biggest experience that I will take away from this internship is how it truly feels to work in a professional setting, something that a school cannot duplicate, and the relationships I gained with everyone at the company. This is an incredible experience that I am grateful for.
