A Farewell To Our 2014 Summer Interns!

As the summer winds down, it's time to say farewell to our interns! We have had such a wonderful summer with them in our offices and I appreciate all of the hard work that they contributed. This year we had forty four interns who came from all over the country. Each intern worked in the department of their choice and was paired up with an MSLO employee that acted as their manager. Over the course of eleven weeks the interns gained real-world work experience by working closely with their managers. They attended department meetings, participated in special projects, and voiced their thoughts and ideas! The day to day situations they engaged in were real and gave them a working opportunity to engage in concept-to-production experience as well as problem-solving and crisis management. Today our HR department put together a final farewell event on our rooftop. The interns enjoyed delicious ice pops from Popbar and also received a signed copy of my cookbooks!
I am hopeful that your experience at MSLO has given you practical experience that you will use for years to come. Best to you as you return to school and as you peruse your goals in the future!
