Meet Garrett Jung, a graduate of the Bachelor of Management Internship program who landed a job after graduation by using the skills and experience that he gained from his internship. Garrett completed his 8-month internship at Alliance World Transport, helping him identify his career path and gaining experience in the field. From this internship, Garrett gained insight on the sales industry helping him focus his grad job search and securing a job. Here’s what Garrett had to say about how his internship experience contributed to his success:
“If you were thinking about doing an internship I would highly recommend it. I learned a lot of professional skills and grew as a person from the experience. The extended time frame allows you to take on larger roles in the company and become more involved in daily operations. During my internship, I learned more than at my past six summer jobs combined. The internship program is a great opportunity that you don’t want to miss.”
“My ideal career is in the sales industry, for recreational products in particular. My internship allowed me to gain an insight on what a role in business-to-business sales entails. This helped me identify a career path before entering the market, and gave me the experience required to secure a position in sales with MSC Industrial Co.”
