Tell the readers a little bit about yourself.
I am a third year at The University of Tennessee Knoxville studying Supply Chain Management and Business Analytics. I was born and raised in Collierville, TN. In my free time I enjoy hanging out with friends, watching movies, and cooking.
Can you talk a little bit about the steps you took to land this internship?
I knew that Terminix was going to visit UT for the career fair. At the time I found out, I did not have a resume. I worked on creating one, and then perfecting it, before meeting with the recruiters at the career fair. Following the career fair, I had two phone calls and now here I am!
What attracted you to ServiceMaster?
I liked the idea that it is near my hometown and I can commute from home. Staying in Memphis allows me to still be familiar with the area that I am working in, and not in a completely new environment, which is something I wanted for this summer.
What was your first impression of the new building?
I thought it was amazing. I was so surprised by how they could make it look so professional, with keeping some of the designs from the mall. In general, it looks clean and modernized.
What has been your most memorable moment this summer?
My most memorable moment has been being able to go on ride a-longs with technicians and sales professionals. I have been out in the field, which allowed me to gain some hands-on experience. This opportunity is something that corporate life does not see on the daily basis.
