What brought you to VEGA?
What are your daily tasks at VEGA?
My daily tasks usually consist of ongoing projects that I am currently working on. Making cold calls a few times per week within the ready-mix industry and speaking with Operations Managers in order to spark interest in our products. Also I concentrate on incoming quotes for a small portion of each day as well as helping on a variety of marketing projects.
Are there any special project you have work on or are working on now?
The majority of my time spent at VEGA is on sales lead development projects. I search for areas within 3-digit zip codes where we as a company are underdeveloped. I recognize our market potential within that region based on industry classification codes. I then develop industry-specific leads for regional managers in order for VEGA as a whole to develop a relationship with these new corporations to eventually develop into future sales.
What is your favorite thing about your school?
Meeting new people every day and establishing relationships you never thought would exist.
What is your favorite place to eat on or around campus?
What is your biggest accomplishment at VEGA?
I cold called a prospect that eventually wanted to meet with us. Myself and our business development manager drove to Cleveland to meet with him. He had an interest in our products and our future hope is to see a sale develop from this.
What kind of impact do you feel you are making at VEGA?
VEGA makes me feel like I have a purpose. My marketing and sales managers give me awesome projects that I know when I complete them, they will have a future positive impact in the growth of our company.
What is the most challenging part about this internship?
Challenges are obviously something that happen every day; but when you’re surrounded with great company like this, someone is always there to help. That’s how we work at VEGA, we’re a team that knocks down any challenge in our way
