My summer with Student Painters started after my general manager came to my school. He gave a great presentation that caught my interest. After a great interview I was given the opportunity to get started with Student Painters. After training I immediately worked to grow cliental. I successfully worked my tail off and met the requirements to open my business. It was a huge learning experience over the summer. It had ups and downs, but I gained a ton of experience. I gained knowledge in sales, management of a crew, and planning and scheduling to get production done. There were also so many little things that I learned about dealing with people and myself. This internship was a challenge, but it does give a unique and rewarding experience.
