At Bealstone, Inc, we believe that hard work and dedicated training can help you go a long way in your career. This is especially true for our interns, who come to us ready to learn about running a business in ways that you can not get from the classroom. This month, we asked Intern Amanda to share what she has learned during her time with us.
Amanda is a sophomore at the University of Pittsburgh, where she is studying Human Resources Management and Finance, with minor in Economics and Political Science. She spends her time outside of school hiking, and has hiked trails in 12 National Parks so far. She is also the Vice President of Member Relations for Pitt’s Enactus Club, a student organization that works in the community to help start-up companies with their marketing and finance needs.
Amanda came to Bealstone, Inc looking for a real-life business learning experience outside of the classroom, where she would have the opportunity to advance her career in a friendly environment. She found that at Bealstone, Inc: “At Bealstone, I felt as though everyone wanted me to succeed and were excited to help! The welcoming environment made it easier for me to ask questions, and there was always someone willing to teach me.”
While at Bealstone, Inc, Amanda has learned many skills relating to operating a business, including how to interview prospective employees, how to close sales through customer interactions, and how important it is to have a positive attitude towards any challenge, “because attitude is one of the key components of achieving success.” She has enjoyed working in an environment where interns are appreciated, where opinions are valued by everyone who works there, and where she was greeted every day with a smile.
After she graduates, Amanda plans to prove herself at a company where she can work to advance into an upper-level position. Based on her time here at Bealstone, Inc, she will not have a problem succeeding!
