And That's the Way the Cookie Crumbles...

Well even though we have only one week left, this will be my last time writing about my wonderful experiences here. It truly has been a great experience working for Liggett, and I feel I am taking away much more knowledge and skill than I had 7 weeks ago.

The great thing about my experience here is that it was unique, and I know this because I was able to compare it to other internships I know of. I have friends who have done internships in a variety of fields, and only a few seemed worthwhile. One of the best parts of my internship was the field trip aspect. Liggett really wants its interns to see other jobs and companies and understand how they work. My favorite trip was to Channel 3 where we got to see Chubby Checker perform. He may have been before my time, but I have been known to twist here and there.

When it comes to working, Liggett really does include the interns in all kinds of projects. I have experienced so many different aspects of so many different projects I feel I am well versed already in this job, but I know there is so much more to be learned. However, I can take the skills and knowledge I have accumulated, and apply it in my future endeavors, and that’s what I love most about my experience here. I know interns at other companies who just went to work for 10 weeks and didn’t get anything out of it. I’m proud to say that is not the case with me.

So I say goodbye to all the readers, and I hope you have enjoyed following my experience through this internship. I feel I am taking away new strengths and new friends. I am grateful to all the people at Liggett who have helped me in the past 7 weeks, and I look forward to my next step.
