Being an intern for about 8 months at CeSI has been a great opportunity for me. I have met so many amazing people and they have taught me about businesses, computers and just life. When I first was hired the people that worked there welcomed me with open arms and accepted me into the business. My boss, Elizabeth, took me under her wing and taught me a lot about businesses. These are just a few things I have learned.
- To be patient with clients because sometimes they can be frustrating.
- Some clients want their website to be perfect and exactly what they want, which can be hard to do sometimes.
- You are not alone. When you get stuck you have co-workers around you that can help you at any time.
- Getting mad also does not help you, you have to remain calm and think things through before you go back to work.
Not only have I learned about how businesses work, I have learned about businesses that I had never heard about before. One example is the Soggy Doggy. Soggy Doggy is a place where you can get your dog washed and buy products for your dog. I knew that there were places like the Soggy Doggy out there, I just never paid attention to them. Now that I know about the Soggy Doggy, every time I see it when I am out and about I can say “Hey look that is one of the clients of the business I work for.” Also if my family wants to do something fun I have more ideas because I know about a lot of businesses like Wiggle Works where we can take the little kids to play and hang out. Also Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad and Museum Scenic Train Rides seems like a fun place to learn about the history of trains and go for a fun ride. So now I have knowledge of some of the businesses around the area I live in and in other areas.
Working for CeSI also has helped me see a new perspective about businesses. Usually in a normal business you work in an office in that company’s building. But CeSI is a unique business because their “office” is in the owner’s home. It was weird at first but I felt comfortable here because the “office” had a home feeling to it and usually when you are home you feel this house warmth and loving feeling.
Working for CeSI has been a huge opportunity for me. This opportunity has given me knowledge and a new perspective on business. I look forward to the future ahead for CeSI and me.
