This past summer, marketing senior Christine Tran interned at Calvin Klein’s New York office, where she had the opportunity to play an active role in product development and (with her team) present a marketing campaign to the CEOs of Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger Americas, and PVH Corp. She credits company leaders as well as her fellow interns and TCNJ faculty for making this a rewarding experience. “The development of the campaign and presentation has truly been one of the most challenging projects I’ve ever worked on. I could not have done it without the help and support of my team of fellow interns. It took ten weeks of bottomless research and intensive editing; all on top of our daily responsibilities within our respective departments. However, I can most definitely say that developing this presentation was one of the best learning experiences I’ve ever had. It is also one of my accomplishments that I am most proud of. ”
On July 20, Finance senior Matt Martin received this year’s top Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship Award from McGraw Hill Financial during the CEO Intern Reception in Manhattan. Matt (shown at far right) interned this summer in the CREDit Analyst Intern Program at Standard and Poor’s in NYC. He noted: I have gathered such a wealth of knowledge from simply being around some of the most intelligent people I have ever met. New York City is an experience in itself, but getting to work at such a storied company has given me such valuable insight both in terms of day-to-day operations and the general working environment. This summer has impacted me both professionally and personally, and the scholarship I received is extremely humbling. I’m very proud, grateful, and reflective on the opportunity I was afforded this summer, and immensely appreciate the people who have made this experience as incredible as it has been.
