Fulfillment of projects that involve recognizing and advertising to target markets.

What was learned: I learned a lot about what it takes to start up and successfully operate your own business. I learned about the hard behind the scenes work that goes into creating a successful project. I learned about failures also and how to adapt to failed projects by adjusting strategies to become successful.

How did it affect your education: I believe this experience gave me an insight on how the real world operates outside of school. I believe this experience gives me an upper hand leaving school.

Do you feel more prepared: I feel much more prepared now that I have had a chance to actually work underneath a business owner before leaving school. I now am more aware of what it takes to be successful.

How will it affect your future: It will affect my future but I now have good work experience. I will now be entering my first job after school with experience therefore I am more prepared.

Recommendations: I recommend even if your major does not require an internship that everyone consider participating in one.
