Summary of Internship

During my time as an intern with Mary Kay, I complete things such as making phone calls for my mentor (my consultant), creating fun and vibrant gift baskets for the clients, taking inventory of all the products- in order to make my mentors life easier- and lastly we travel to local centers trying to give back and set up classes and facials for the men and women there. At these centers, we give free facials and give out goody bags with little samples of our product so that they actually get to try our products and have more of an understanding when we do presentations for them. Also, on certain holidays we will make sure to visit each of our regular centers and give the men and woman there holiday treats and samples to ensure them that in Mary Kay our clients meant the world to us. Over all, interning with Mary Kay has been an amazing experience and it is more than fulfilling to see lives being changed.
