In spring of 2022, I applied for, and was offered an HR Internship position at BFAIR. I had the best internship experience; the program was catered to my desires, but also encouraged me to explore the other aspects of the field. My supervisors were always supportive, and all the other office staff made me feel like I belonged despite my age. As the summer ended, my supervisor offered me a temporary, part time position until I graduated and moved away in December. I was overjoyed – I wanted to work at BFAIR more than I even wanted to go to school!
As I dashed between classes and work, the skills I was learning hands-on, and the staff and individuals I met, made me look forward to returning every day. My supervisors trusted me and my abilities and gave me the power and opportunity to make decisions. I knew I would compare all future jobs to this one and dreaded having to leave upon graduation. As graduation approached, I was thrilled to be offered the opportunity to stay with the company. The opportunity to grow and learn with a company that I already was in love with was truly a miracle. With BFAIR, I went from an inexperienced intern to a confident, full-time employee in 6 months, and I am, and will always be thankful for where I started, and where I will go with them.
