This semester flew by for me and now it is time for summer! This summer I will be interning for Madewell, which is owned by J Crew, in their Long Island City office! I will be doing Production Management for them, which even though it is my major I have never technically interned in- I’ve always done Product Development, my future dream job. I’m excited to see how a larger company does production, as most of the production work I have helped with has been for luxury or small businesses.
I worked at Madewell all during my freshman year as a sales support associate, so it really does feel full-circle to return to them for my senior summer. I look forwards to putting all my brand knowledge to good use in corporate, and getting feedback from my peers still at the retail stores! Working retail in high school and college is a great way to get your foot in the door at potential future corporate employers- find a company you admire and see if they are looking for retail workers. It can give you a big upper hand when it comes to internships down the road, and looks great on your resume.
Aside from work, I hope to go to a Yankees game and Coney Island! I’d also love to have a few picnics with friends, and check out the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. Since last summer I spent my time in LA, I look forwards to getting some NYC summer living in.
I have the summer off from blogging, but I look forwards to hopefully updating you all in the fall about what I learned and did.
Have a great summer!
