Recently our Customer Service Intern, Irene, gave her final final presentation for her internship class in conjunction with her job here at S3.
Irene has been a great addition to both S3 International and S3 Repair Services!
During her presentation at Cardinal Stritch University, Irene spoke about what she learned while working at S3, explaining the parts she liked about the job and how this experience will prepare her for future employment.
"Due to my internship experience this fall, I learned how to use Pentagon and Haystack — both are military software where all the data is stored and now I am confident in navigating them. I also developed the skill of reading technical and military data, which includes reading the military tags, overhaul and repair requirements as well as features, manufacturers' name and trace to the OEM."
"Thanks to my internship, I am now able to manage multiple projects at the same time with different deadlines and I am more comfortable in where I want to pursue my career. I gained knowledge in logistics and export requirements. I am starting to understand the role of supply chain inside the company and quality requirements for each job.
At the same time, it makes me a more qualified applicant due to the exposure to the customer side as well to the procurement. I understand how these two sides of this particular industry works together and to know better the market for this company."
