As my time with Office Interiors comes to an end, I have an opportunity to think back on the whirlwind that was the past four months. Office Interiors generously allowed me to accomplish the second of three work terms I must complete for the Coop program in which I am enrolled at SMU. I cannot properly express my gratitude for this exceptional opportunity but I will make an attempt.
At Office Interiors, I was able to experience many different sides of the business and I truly got to see how such a company operates. I was given the chance to contact clients, handle product purchasing and develop a social media marketing strategy, among an assortment of other projects. The work in which I participated at Office Interiors has given me a much deeper understanding of what I have been learning in my degree. I am now able to approach my studies with a much different perspective, a perspective where I actually relate theories I am learning, and I can apply them to real world experience rather than simply memorizing.
I am extremely grateful to Office Interiors, and in particular to Jim Mills, for allowing me to complete my work term at OI. I thoroughly enjoyed working with the great team here at OI and would like to specifically thank Leilany, Shelley, Hugh, and Gregor for their exceptional help and mentoring.
