For my Collegium project this year, I am trying to secure a summer internship in 2019. A summer internship would allow me to put another great spot on my resume, improve my post-graduation odds of landing a job I want, and give me real-world experience in what I have been learning in the classroom.
As of now, I have applied to Huntington, SAS, and a number of other places. Of the places I have applied, Huntington is a top option. Their analytics department matched with finance is closely related to my major and would provide incredible real-world experience.
Honda, Meijer, and ESPN remain as some of my top choices for companies I have not applied for yet. Honda, which has a great plant in my hometown, would be fantastic for analytics in product development and logistics. This past summer, I worked at a Meijer Distribution Center. This coming summer, I am hoping to build off of this and work at their headquarters for the summer doing logistical and finance data work. As for ESPN, my time with Eleven Warriors has interested me in some ways to pursue a career in sports analytics. An internship at ESPN would give me an unrivaled experience.
Continuing, I have reached out to people at both Huntington and ESPN to ask questions. As of now, I have received no response, but hopefully networking with people in the industry will allow me to learn more about their respective companies.
