New England Division

I was interested in doing the internship with Young Entrepreneurs Across America because it is a unique experience that offers many positive benefits. I have learned many things throughout the summer which include leadership development, marketing, sales, accountability, production, human resource management, recruiting, profitability management, customer relations, and much more. This internship has also provided me with a great networking opportunity which has allowed me to connect with many like-minded, ambitious individuals. Not only do I have the network of other interns and alumni, but I also have the network of homeowners who I have completed estimates for or have had the privilege of providing a service to. The amount of personal growth and development I have gained is not comparable to any other internship I’ve found thus far. I have gained an incredible amount of confidence, and I have learned to love being pushed outside my comfort zone. I would definitely recommend this internship to any student who is looking for real world business experience, and being held to the highest level of responsibility. This experience not only made me grow as a business woman, but also in life. The management, communication, and leadership skills that this internship has taught me have put me years ahead of most of my peers in terms of real world experience. It has been truly life changing.
