I am beyond ecstatic to be be interning with Detour Guy, a company that uses artificial intelligence and big data analytics to help travelers plan their trips. Throughout the next two months, I hope to really delve into the tasks that I am given. I have many experiences working for the public sector, so the opportunity to work for Detour Guy, a company based in Hong Kong, will be a great chance for me to learn new things and use what I have learned thus far. Specifically, throughout this semester, I hope to acquire more market research skills. I especially look forward to directly working with Brian, the CEO, and help his company grow. Another goal for me is to make an impact. Though I may be just an intern, I hope to be efficient and beneficial and really assist in strategy formulation and execution as a Market Research analyst.
Though I have contacted my mentor, I have yet to hear back from him. However, I will most certainly be thinking about these goals while I embark on this internship. I have gained a tremendous amount of knowledge throughout the courses I have taken, but it has been the internships and work experiences where I can really gain real-world skills.
