Recently, we had an opportunity to participate in the Cameron School of Business (UNCW) internship program. We advertised for an intern position with a heavy focus on marketing. The candidates who applied were all great; I wish we could have taken them all! We offered our first internship spot to Lorraine, who is already proving to be an invaluable addition to our team. Together, we’re accomplishing a lot of fun, new projects for the bon bon business, just in time for the holidays!
Lorraine’s favorite bon bon flavor is the Café au Lait. In fact, she loves coffee so much, every day she and Pascal share a pot made in his French press. This Thanksgiving, I have a lot to be grateful for, and Lorraine will be at the top of the list. Here are her first impressions of life as an intern at South ‘n France:
As the newest member to the South 'n France team, I would like to take a second to formally introduce myself. My name is Lorraine Schwartz and I am a senior at the University of North Carolina Wilmington working on completing my Marketing degree. Only one semester left!
Born in Dallas, TX and raised in Raleigh, NC I grew up heavily involved in cheerleading and student organizations. When it was time to leave the nest, moving to the beach was an easy decision. After four years here I am still falling deeper in love with the city and the people every day.
A couple of weeks ago I received an email informing me about a great
opportunity to intern with South 'n France. I was first intrigued by the nature of the business (since I love to cook) but also thought I could learn a lot from working with Charlene. With her extensive background in marketing and recruiting I knew she would have plenty to teach me.
After interning here for only a few weeks, I can already say that I love it. Charlene is great to work with and I get to use my creativity on fun and interesting projects. For example, we just completed the 2010 holiday catalogue to be sent out in the next couple of weeks, as well as launching South ‘n France products on Chocolate.com. I can honestly say that I am learning a lot. Pascal's not so bad either (don't let him fool you; he is a gentleman at heart
With plenty more to be done for the holiday season I look forward to continuing to work with Charlene and this great company.
