Getting Involved

Spartan Spotlight Name: Laura Hammer Home Town: Livonia, MI Major: Marketing & Retailing Degree: Bachelor of Arts Graduation: May 2011 Company: JCPenny Position: Sales Manager Intern

What was the biggest challenge during your internship experience? Everyday was not the same at all and it was very hard getting used to the fast paced environment of the retail industry.

What surprised you about your internship? The thing that surprised me was how different each day was and that you cannot plan your day out when you work in the retail industry.

As a part the top Supply Chain education program in the country, the Supply Chain Management Association (SCMA) strives to provide students with exceptional learning experiences and development opportunities beyond the classroom environment. This is accomplished through exposure to leading industry practices and business professionals, as well as an additional forum for student/faculty interaction.


What would you tell others about your internship experience? A store management internship is a great opportunity to learn about different areas of business and helps you gain great leadership skills in a fast-paced, exciting environment!

How did you find your internship? I found my internship through MySpartanCareer. I applied online and they contacted me for a phone interview and then brought me out for an on-site interview.
