Give us a brief summary of your experience?

I interned as a Global Business Organization Sales Intern under the LinkedIn Sales Solutions team. I was assigned to the major accounts team that was verticalized for financial services. Over the course of 12 weeks, I was tasked with learning the organization and identifying areas of improvement in our executive engagement processes. At the end of my internship, I presented to 6 senior leaders 3 major recommendations to up level executive engagement and brand recognition for LinkedIn's Sales software. 

How did this experience impact you academically?

I had the opportunity to learn about the tech industry and software sales through my team and various members of the organization. I was able to experience virtual and in-person client facing events, as well as witness internal events and processes.

How will this experience impact your career goals?

My career trajectory has pivoted towards sales and software. I found my internship very engaging and would like to learn more about sales, software, and the tech industry. In fact, I was offered a return offer to their full-time rotational Business Leadership Program and plan to expand my horizons on understanding tech sales. 

How has the College of the Liberal Arts helped you to find and/or succeed in this experience (e.g., adviser, faculty, staff, enrichment funds, etc.)?

The Chapel Executive Internship program made it possible to afford comfortable housing, food, and travel expenses to live in New York City for the summer. I was able to focus on cultivating my experience and making the most out of the in-person opportunity to network, become familiar with the office, attend team off-sites, and get a taste of what it will be like to live as a working adult. 

How has the Paterno Fellows Program had an impact on this experience?

The Paterno Fellow program pushes you to be better than your best and without that program, I would not have had the resume experiences I do or the drive to be better than my best.
