This summer I have been able to learn a lot about various different fields within the corporate world and that has a lot to do with the program I have been a part of, which focuses on exposing diverse candidates to corporate life and it has really changed my perspective on what I want to work in. One of the resources we are given in the program is a mentor and I am thankful for the mentor I have, especially because she is also a young woman of color navigating in a company where there aren’t many Latinas. My mentor has been able to introduce me to Public Affairs and I am very interested in working in Public Affairs in the future as a way to understand how to organize events within corporate citizenship and philanthropy. She has also been able to help me with my resume and with soft skills within business and getting a job in a new place. While I have been able to get advice from various people within the company in different departments she has been the consistent support while I have been in my internship and has encouraged me to speak up to receive more work as well as asking people to meet with me. I know she will also be a good person to know and be friends with in the future if I get a job here because it feels like she genuinely cares about me.
