Intern Spotlight: Abbas' first few days
Learning about wind energy has been a curiosity of mine for a few weeks. Luckily, I was able to get an internship at Urban Green Energy. Since starting this internship, I have learned about the process of installing wind turbines as well as how beneficial they can be to any consumer interested in purchasing one. Having no background learning about this industry, I can honestly say I was nervous to start working in a new environment. However, the employees of this company were open minded and took no time in making me feel comfortable. I was able to read up on the sales manual and research more about the company on their website, which made my restlessness disappear and my interest in turbines grow. After spending only a few hours in the office on my first day, I had already felt as though I had an understanding of how Urban Green Energy markets their products and which target market would be most suitable. I hope to major in marketing when I return to my university next semester; I know Urban Green Energy would be a great place to start.
