During my first day interning for Merion Matters I found it to be very exciting and interesting at the same time. Exciting because I am actually getting to work in the buying enviornment something that i'm not used to and interesting because this is the career path that I want to take upon graduation. I did find my first week to be the most productive. During the first week is where I really feel like I found out the most about the company, the buying department and my boss. My first week wasn’t as hands on as I would have liked it to be but I do understand that as a “newby” in the group I need to crawl before I can walk. I learned at least 5 new vocab terms that I had never head of before which were the blank, lead time, style number, affliate and PO. I also liked the fact that my boss took me on a tour of the building and not only introduced me to the buying team but all of the other teams in the office some of which I thought had nothing to do with my department but later found out that everyone there is connected in some way shape or form. It was good to go around and hear everybody’s title and them tell me how what they did connected to the buying aspect of the company. I like the fact that the company isnt too big. I think that for me interning at a smaller company gives me a chance to take on a little bit more responsibility as well as freedom and it give me a chance to connect with the people around me and build bonds. My first week at Merion Matters was enough to convince me to stay and continue to intern there for as long as they allow me to. I am really thinking of continuing to intern there even after my 90 credited hours are up just because I feel like Merion Matters can give me great hands on experience. My boss has told me numerous times that whatever she can do to help me grow and learn she will do and to me I think that sounds very promising.
