What matters most is...
Over the past few months, you may have noticed a new face in the office. This new face was Megan Kitz, our rock-star summer 2017 intern. Towards the end of her internship, we asked her to reflect on some of the key takeaways from her experience at Olenick. She wrote the following…
Throughout my internship, I attended several Knowledge Sessions. These Knowledge Sessions had a wide range of topics; from work/life balance to adapt to the new age of IoT. The work/life balance Knowledge Session resonated with me, as I was able to relate to it at a personal level. Throughout my eight-week internship, I felt that the Olenick culture exemplified a healthy work/life balance.
During my time at Olenick, I worked on a variety of projects. I was privileged to work in conjunction with the Business Development team, the Legal team, and the Marketing team. Each of the projects that I worked on directly aided Olenick; and I felt as if I was treated as a new employee, rather than a summer intern.
With the Business Development team, I mainly worked on Salesforce Field Guide support, which involved creating documentation and video training on ambiguous fields within Salesforce. Although a lot of work went into creating these Salesforce aids, the atmosphere throughout was light and fun. There was a balance of hard, quality work and light-hearted conversations throughout the day to make my eight weeks at Olenick fly by.
I also worked with the Marketing team to create the blog post and social media campaign for ILTACON, and because ILTACON is a legal technology conference, I was also able to work with the Legal team. This project sparked my creative side, helping to come up with a theme for the Olenick booth along with the social media posts. Throughout the progression of this project, I was really able to learn valuable skills needed, including speaking up about an out-of-the-box idea. Again, a balance was duly noted in this setting as well—a balance of getting the job done while having a good laugh along the way.
I am grateful for the incredible experience I had as in intern at Olenick. I learned many useful skills for the business world and also learned you can really enjoy where you work if you have an energizing atmosphere in the office.
