I was on a buying team and I loved working with my team to handpick assortments at various markets, work collaboratively with the planning team, attend overall department meetings and company-wide townhalls and communicate and maintain relationships with vendors. We also had classes multiple times a week to learn about different aspects of the business.
What I wish was different
I wish that the final intern project had been a little less vague in terms of direction and more structured in terms of meetings times and deadlines along the way throughout the summer.
Keep an open mind and ask a lot of questions. I had an amazing team who were eager to answer all of my questions and connect with me with other people in other departments to learn from them as well. Connections are really important and at a big company like Saks the opportunities to connect with new people are endless.
