Interdisciplinary business junior Joe Salamone interned in Orlando, Florida at World of Beer and The Hacienda Hills Country Club & Restaurant during summer 2016, where he applied his TCNJ education to real life business scenarios. World of Beer is leading the unique, exploding cultural phenomenon of Craft Taverns. The Hacienda Hills Country Club is a traditional country club setting with striking dining hospitality.
At World of Beer, Salamone shadowed owner, Mahesh Nomula who immigrated from India 17 years ago with little money in his pockets. Joe described Nomula’s life as the great American success story who’s formula for success is simple, “There are no shortcuts in life, you just have to work hard, and America is the best place on earth if you have a dream.” Read more about entrepreneur Mahesh Nomula here.
Joe commented “This internship will add real-life experience to my Interdisciplinary Business Major. I will interact with customers, assist in creating new development strategies, attend meetings, network, coordinate special events, participate in promotions and public relation functions. I feel fortunate to be able to work side by side with a passionate entrepreneur, like Mahesh Nomula. The experience will be priceless.”
