Selected to participate in a week long externship designed to give me experience working
on a consulting case team.
Building Entrepreneurial Leaders Extern - Bain & Company (August 2015)
During my week at Bain, I worked on a $3 billion industrial baked goods company. My work stream required me to analyze its profitability compared to its competitors and gain insights on which product lines or customer channels drive its performance.
Start Intern - PwC (June 2015 - July 2015)
While at PwC I had two rotations. The first was in their national data center. My major project during that time was to develop a system to keep track of the emergency supplies so that they had non-expired rations that could last for several days in the event of an emergency.
My second rotation was with the records department. I worked on automating a process that was used to inform employees if they were not in compliance with the file check regulations. My spreadsheet will be used to save several hours for employees from all over the country.
Technical Analyst Intern - Principal Financial Group (May 2014 - August 2014)
As a technical analyst, my job primarily consisted of development work on portions of The
Principal's website that allow small and medium businesses to manage the insurance
plans they buy for employees. I had two major projects during my time there. The first
was researching and implementing a build system transfer that would allow developers to
improve workspace set up time by a factor of 8. The second was a code jam project,
during which I led a team of 6, including a remote member, in the design and
implementation of a proof of concept website in period of 3 days.
Software Development Intern - Partner Software Inc. (January 2014 - May 2014, August 2014 - December 2014)
As a software developer at Partner Software I worked on two main projects. The first was
a rewrite of modules that improved code organization while also improving run time by
over 100%. The second project was automating the installation process for new customers
which saved hours during the set up process.
Web Development Intern - Four Athens (September 2013 - November 2013)
As a web developer at the non-profit Four Athens, I worked on setting up pages for
various events that the organization was doing. I also implemented a mail sign up slider
on the home page that increased mail list sign ups by 10%.
Service Clerk - Walgreen's (2011 - 2013)
As a service clerk, my primary job was to make sure customers had an enjoyable experience
while in the stores. I consistently engaged customers to maintain a suggested sale rate
more than double that of the store average.
