Fourth-year Business Student Sarah helps King's Bookstore Improve Ordering and Purchasing Processes During her Internship
Sarah McFadyen, a fourth-year Bachelor of Commerce student, is spending her summer as an intern at The King's University Bookstore.
As an intern, she works on a series of projects based on the Bookstore's analytics program, as well as on improving their ordering and purchasing processes.
This internship is pushing her out of her comfort zone as she works mostly independently, and has to develop a lot of her own guidelines and expectations.
Sarah will be entering the law program at the University of Alberta in the fall.
She feels that through her internship she is developing new skills centred on analytics, and believes this type of independent work is going to help her succeed, not only in law school, but also further on in her career.
Sarah was surprised to find how much she enjoyed working in a bookstore. Here she discovered a very calming environment and described it as a lovely place to work.
