As an intern for the assistant general manager, Leonard helped prepare for the hotel’s fall open by working on a myriad of projects ranging from marketing and communications work, research, project management and human resources.
“Along with my daily responsibilities, I got to be a part of the hiring process! I just turned 20, so I was 19 at the time, and I’ve already experienced what it’s like to be a part of the conversation when businesses make personnel decisions.”
A Business Administration major and Psychology minor, this internship allowed Leonard to put into practice some of the concepts he learned in the classroom. “I’ve taken several Accounting and Economics courses, so when I had to work with numbers it was no problem because I already had the experience.”
