Steeplechase Business Solutions: As an intern, what did you learn this summer?
Ashley: I learned a lot! I learned about planning, hard work, the importance of short and long term goals, and much more! I was not only taught the sales and marketing aspect of the business, I was taught about human resources, interviewing, and training. It was great to help to coach others to reach and exceed company expectations.
Steeplechase Business Solutions: When looking for a career after graduation, what is one skill that you will take with you that was learned here?
Ashley: One skill that I will use in the future is the ability to train and coach. While working here this summer, I learned about different coaching styles and techniques for different individuals. I think this is important to understand that everyone learns differently, which in turn means that I have to coach and train differently. It was so beneficial to learn this because now I know I will become a stronger mentor to everyone around me and I will be a big asset to any company.
