Now that my internship has really gotten going, I would like to take some time to reflect on my experience thus far. My main goal of meeting new people has certainly been met. I have met a lot of great people thus far who have told me many great things and taught me life lessons. Most importantly they have told me that I am meant for this type of industry and that I would be a great asset to Levy in the future. Just as importantly, I have learned so much more about the food industry in such a small amount of time whether that is the stadium club, concessions, or the warehouse. So much more goes into this business than I would have ever thought. My new goal is to take on more big projects and deal with financials. On Mondays the whole office deals with financials and I want to develop a better understanding of these financials so one day I will be able to do it myself. Certainly, I have gotten much much better with excel and this is something I am proud of. I think what I am doing the best is getting along with staff; everyone seems to get along with me fairly well. I only get frustrated when I am unaware of what to do or am getting told to do too many tasks at once. In regards to personal growth, I just want to continue doing what I am doing and control my stress level better during event days. Something I have really enjoyed is working in all branches of the company. I do need to be a bit more social around the corporate employees who come through the office and develop a better relationship with the client, aka the sports teams. Overall, halfway through the internship it is going amazing!
