Ampersand’s coaching has given me the most realistic and practical advice in my transition from school to career process. Their coaching sessions gave me all the things I needed to hear to push myself to start playing that numbers game with my networking. I really feel like there's a purpose to the steps in my job search process now.
I think my favorite part was the training around Google Docs, Sheets and Presentation and Calendar because most students learn through Microsoft software. When I started my internship, I had to use Google and the training offered video and tips and tricks.
As we wrap up the experience in the platform, I’m walking away with the skills I need to get my dream job, like creating a strong resume and tailoring it to a job description, putting together a detailed portfolio, and activating my network on LinkedIn and beyond. I developed my professional communication and presentation skills, learned about SEO and blog writing, and built connections with my managers that will help me in my exploration of potential careers."
Ampersand has given me the opportunity to better myself in every way and provided me with a process that enhanced both my strengths and weaknesses. With the projects I was given, I was able to develop my design talents and my communication skills by using Adobe and Canva. My internship experience was both instructive and eye-opening. My supervisors taught me step-by-step how to complete each task, and once I got the hang of it, they gave me the flexibility to do tasks that involved creativity. I'm especially proud of my social assets because it allowed me to utilize my imagination and envision how I wanted to develop a specific template while still adhering to the company's branding guidelines."
Ampersand has been beyond helpful throughout this entire process. They were always available to answer any questions I had and gave me the confidence I needed to be a better intern. I appreciated the career help that I was given by Scott. It made me realize that I really can achieve any career path I want if I put in the work on my LinkedIn and polish up my resume, as well as grow my network. I also enjoyed my weekly meeting with Scott to catch up on my progress at my internship. These sessions gave me the confidence boost I needed and also clear up any questions I had about literally anything."
