Naomi on what she learned
Thoughts on being an intern?
Being an intern at TEAL Apparel was an awesome experience. Jenni is a great mentor and I learned so much throughout the duration of the internship. I enjoyed going to work because it was such a positive atmosphere and there was never a dull moment. The internship was very hands on and I learned something new every day!
What did you expect?
When I walked through the door on my first day of the internship I had already known that I was going to have a great experience. Jenni spoke about her goals and the company with so much passion which got me really excited before even starting my internship. I didn’t expect that we would get to visit the factory which was one of my favorite experiences
Best part of the internship?
The best part of the internship was the fact that I got to see and be involved in so many different aspects of the business. Every time I came in to work I had a different task to achieve which not only challenged me but allowed me to learn something new. For example, one day I would be conducting research for product development versus another day where I would be creating social media posts.
What surprised you the most?
What surprised me the most was how involved Jenni gets with her interns. I loved the working environment because it was more face to face which allowed us to work together as a team. Whether I had a question or an idea about something she was there to listen and give input. She was with me every step of the way and we made a great team!
This past Winter/Spring TEAL had a new first. Instead of one intern we lucked out with two. This dynamic duo came to us from Newbury College, with Fashion Merchandising majors and several shared experiences including, study abroad in Florence, Italty to directing and coordinating the College’s fashion show. To say we hit the jackpot was an understatement. They cranked out blog posts, did research on several new products, sat in on sample fittings, shot tons of material for social media, coordinated a photoshoot, joined a sales pitch to a new client and journeyed to our factory in Everett. Lauren and Naomi model teamwork, commitment, creativity and determination. Thank you and congratulations on your graduation from Newbury College! Wishing you both much learning and success.
