What brought you back to VEGA?
I came back to VEGA because I love the company culture and the work that I do. It is a great start to my career path.
What are your daily tasks at VEGA?
Every morning I check the sales leads that we receive. I send these to our sales representative all around the country as well as North and South Americas. Because of my part-time schedule this is my biggest responsibility.
Are you working on any special projects?
Special projects for this term will revolve mostly around sales. This is a big area of interest for me and my career. My managers and coworkers give me plenty of opportunities to work in this field. Some of the projects include finding contacts for new customers each month, finding customer contacts in the radiometric field dating back to 1994, and using sales tools to find potential customers.
What is your biggest accomplishment at VEGA?
Being asked to come back for a second term with such enthusiasm and excitement from my managers.
Favorite place to eat on/around campus?
What is your favorite class?
Music of The Beatles - this class changed how much I appreciate music of all genres and styles. Music is definitely way more important to me after taking this class.
What kind of impact do you feel you are making at VEGA?
I feel like I am just another employee, not an intern who runs and gets coffee for everyone. People ask for my help on projects all the time and my input and suggestions are taken seriously; my work is appreciated by everyone.
What is the most challenging part about this internship?
The biggest challenge this rotation is only sharing one hour of time with the other marketing co-op. This makes it difficult to collaborate on projects which is very important in our department and share similar responsibilities.
