6 months…19 applications…11 interviews…and 4 offers later….I have an internship for the summer….and I am so excited! I looked at non-profits, agencies, corporations, and small companies….and in the end….I decided to accept an offer to intern in Human Resources with Vera Bradley in Fort Wayne for the summer. Basically….I’m ecstatic. I first began to love Vera a few years ago when I started to buy their bags….and even then I started out small with only a clutch and an ID case. Now, I love Vera Bradley for so many more reasons, in addition to the actual products themselves of course. They have an amazing and unique company culture, one that I am so excited to be able to experience and get my first real working experience in.
The only downside to working in Fort Wayne this summer is that I am from southwestern Indiana….and I will be spending the summer in northeastern Indiana. So basically, I will be as far away from home as I can be, while still being in the state of Indiana. So that will make trips home more time consuming…and since my sister is getting married this summer….I might have to make the trip every once in awhile to help plan things out. And in addition to that, I’m not sure where I will be living just yet….but there is still almost a month…which is plenty of time…right?
Luckily, I am so excited for this amazing opportunity that it makes all of the difficulties and uncertainties completely fade away into the back of my mind. So….be sure to check out my blog this summer to see how I handle the transition to being away from home and Butler at the same time….and you can also check out the blog that I will be writing with Vera Bradley for the inside scoop of an intern’s experience at this amazing company!
