This blog post was written by our guest blogger, Alyssa Dalrymple, summer intern at Research & Marketing Strategies (RMS) here in Baldwinsville, NY.
Well, as difficult as it is to believe, this will be my last blog entry as I begin the final week of my internship here at RMS, a market research firm in Syracuse NY. This was a truly amazing summer and my experience at RMS has been one of the reasons why. I have learned many new skills in addition to developing those I had before. I also feel as though I have grown as a person and am now more comfortable in professional environments.
Throughout my time here, I have been involved in a variety of interesting projects and activities. This internship has been especially meaningful because I have been able to see how what I worked on had an actual impact on the company and its operations. It’s been great to gather my work samples and compile a portfolio that showcases what I’ve done throughout my internship.
I can absolutely attribute my success to the people I was fortunate enough to work with. I learned something from each and every individual. Every day, I clearly saw the value of teamwork and how everyone played a role in accomplishing what needed to be done. My supervisor and colleagues have been nothing but supportive and helpful from the beginning of this experience. They even decorated my desk for my birthday! I will definitely miss them.
In just a couple of weeks, I will begin my senior year of college. Before working for RMS, I was very nervous and unsure whenever I thought about my future and the next step I will take after graduation. Now, I am confident that the skills and experiences I have acquired will allow me to embrace whatever may come my way. This internship has taught me to capitalize on opportunities and challenge myself to go above and beyond. I know that I will continue to use what I have learned from RMS and will remember this experience as I move forward in my life and career.
Good luck to you Alyssa! Thanks for everything you’ve done this past summer for Research & Marketing Strategies (RMS).
