During Summer 2018, I worked as an HR Data Specialist Intern for Morgan, Lewis, & Bockius LLP. During my time at Morgan Lewis, I managed a reports request inbox. I completed the requests using the company’s internal database, MySQL, Microsoft Access, and Excel.
During this time, I learned what it was like to work a real job. Aside from sharpening my hard skills, I was able to sharpen my soft skills as well. I attended meetings with our HR Operations team daily and communicated how I was going to assist in reaching our deadlines. Importantly, I learned how to cooperate with a team in a professional setting. I completed a project for the Chief of HR that she presented to the partners of the firm. Overall, the experience I had was priceless. I look forward to bringing those skills to future career opportunities.
