I am so excited to begin this Flash Internship with Levy Restaurants in Chicago. Growing up in the area, I’ve been to many Levy-run venues as well others around the country. I never paused to think about how much work was put in to my favorite sandwich at United Center or my favorite restaurant at Ravinia Festival. I am eager to see what kind of thought is put into choices that are made across the country. And being a big fan of sports and entertainment with little to no knowledge of hospitality, I am excited to learn about what Levy has to offer!
This will also be a great networking opportunity for my peers and me. With there being only 12 of us, we are in a unique position to speak with alumni in an intimate setting. These successful LSA alumni have been exactly where I am now, and have worked their way to impressive positions. As a Junior watching the days until graduation quickly go by, I need their help. I am hoping to use their career advice to become the ideal candidate for any job I may want (as well as to figure out what that job may be!). In addition to containing years of advice and experience, these alumni have tons of connections that I am excited to gain access to.
I am so grateful for the opportunity LSA Opportunity Hub and Levy Restaurants are giving me. I am looking to come out of this experience with a greater knowledge of what I want to do post-grad, and I can’t wait!
