If I have to think of all the things that I did and learned during my internship at Select Italy, it would definitely be impossible to remember all of them. This is because from the first day in the office I became an active resource for the company and every task they assigned me, from the easiest to the most complicated, gave me the opportunity to learn something new. Everyone from the team(s) (Chicago and New York) has always been very nice and available to help, to give suggestions and to exchange knowledge, so as to make me comfortable with my tasks and during my everyday life in the office. One of the things that I appreciated most has been the possibility to deal with different kinds of tasks and projects, working on sales, or on marketing strategy, with the Production or the Marketing Department, in a process that permitted me to test and improve all the knowledge I got through my studies, and also to understand more about the plans for my future. After 3 months I can easily say that this internship has been a success, as it gave me the opportunity to grow professionally and as a person. In addition, and apart from the work side, Chicago is a wonderful city, with amazing views, good food, and really friendly people...so, what to ask more!!
