I was responsible for...
I created visuals for inside the showroom and also for tradeshow events. I researched new accounts for west coast sales. I got to sit in on buyer and vendor meetings to understand the buying side of it.

I accomplished...
My greatest accomplishment was doing research for the company about new buyers and accounts. The company then went through and reached out to see if BUTIK was a company they would want to buy from. Another accomplishment was gaining a better understanding of the wholesale side of the industry and jewelry as a whole.

I learned...
The greatest lesson I learned was to always ask questions and try to gain as much knowledge as I could from each opportunity.

Advice for others...
My advice for future students is to always be open to new ideas and opportunities. No matter how big or small an opportunity is you can always gain something!
