Summary of Internship

As an intern for AXA Advisors, I make hundreds of calls a day. I am in charge of two main areas recruitment of job candidates, and identifying potential customers. I typically call over 100 potential customers an hour to put them on my list. I also call the most qualified job candidates in order to schedule interviews with them to see if they are right for a position. The digital aspect of this is the online job postings I set up to attract a higher class of applicants. My work has taught me the importance of not goofing off. I always skip lunch because it is more important to get the job done than it is to enjoy frivolous embellishments. I plan on rising to the top of any field I chose to pursue, and this job has been good practice for me. Already, my responsibilities have multiplied exponentially, and I am gaining the trust of the most highly ranked people in the company.
