Time flies when you're having fun

Time flies when you're having fun

Well, I'm in my final week with Cargill. I only have a few more days of my summer in the city. I still can’t believe all that I was able to experience with accepting an internship offer with Cargill. I learned so much. Whether it was driving down the back, country road to a farm shed to meet with a customer or attending a sales meeting in downtown Minneapolis at a hotel that was far fancier than I usually stay, I had an amazing time. The people I worked with, however, are the reason I had such an awesome experience. Although I didn’t do everything right, I was definitely able to learn from mistakes and execute on what was most effective and efficient for the business. Just last week I presented all of my findings from the data I gathered to the leadership team to provide positive and constructive feedback on what was working well and what to improve upon. To say ‘time flies when you’re having fun,’ is an understatement. I will greatly miss my new friends and coworkers. This summer has been one for the records and will certainly not be forgotten.
