Retail Strategy Intern

My position for my Summer 2023 Internship was “Retail Strategy”, but was a technical position within the company.

  1. Information about the organization (e.g., type, size, location, specific division/department in which you are employed)
    1. Five Below is a large retailer headquartered in Philadelphia specializing in discounted items. I was a Retail Strategy intern in the Strategy department.
  2. Job function (e.g., overall role, assigned tasks)
    1. During my time at Five Below, I was tasked with creating a virtual view of all functions acted out by each division/department. In addition to this, I was tasked to code tools that aided in visibility and data submission.
  3. Examples of projects (e.g., list the projects you worked on and what you accomplished)
    1. I had a single, large project documenting all division functions and a timeline of when these functions occurred.
    2. I was tasked with coding automatic data submission tools and visibility selectors using a combination of Python and Visual Basic.
    3. I was lastly tasked with creating documentation for both non-technical users of the visualization as well as a technical document for the full-time employee tasked with maintaining the view.
  4. What you learned and how it relates to your major (e.g., describe what you learned from this internship in the context of specific courses).
    1. This role taught me how to make the distinction between technical and non-technical employees and further showed me how to explain a complicated/technical solution to both parties. (MIS 3534)
    2. I further developed a problem-solving mindset and how to use technical solutions to improve upon challenges that may seem non-technical at first. (MIS 3534)
    3. Improved coding skills and determining which data should be used for what.  (MIS 2101 and 2502)
