I was responsible for...

I accomplished...
My greatest accomplishment from this experience was being able to quickly learn, many online programs in a short amount of time that I ended up using throughout my internship for my daily assignments and tasks.

I learned...
I learned a lot about the company and different departments besides the Consumer Revenue group I primarily worked for. I also got to eat lunch with CEO Steve Lacey one on one and that alone was a great experience.

Advice for others...
