Meet our summer intern, Jordan Lee. Jordan is from Hernando, Florida. He is a Senior Marketing major at Baylor University. However, he is interested in pursuing a career in Sales. He is an ambitious, creative, and energetic individual and we see great opportunities arising for him in the future. It was an absolute pleasure having him as part of the GoodSuite team this summer.
Q: What is the most unique thing about working at GoodSuite?
A: Definitely the ease of being able to work with different departments. Being able to work closely with the sales team and the marketing team was definitely a unique experience I don’t think I could have had anywhere else.
Q: What do you enjoy most about what you’ve done at GoodSuite?
A: I think the thing I enjoyed most about what I’ve done at GoodSuite is that I was able to get some real, hands-on sales experience. I went out cold calling about three days a week, and because of that I got to meet a lot of new people I wouldn’t have been able to otherwise, and learned how to sell effectively.
Q: If you could describe your internship at GoodSuite in one word, what would it be?
A: It’s hard to describe any experience with just one word, but if I had to use one word to describe this experience, it would be “incredible.” It was incredible being able to get to work alongside and learn directly from salesmen with many years in the industry. It was incredible working with the marketing department and being able to add my own touch to different projects. Just overall, incredible.
Q: What is your favorite memory or moment of your internship?
A: My favorite memory of my internship would definitely be when I did a marketing presentation by myself. I was extremely nervous going into it, and while I knew that I knew the presentation well, I was still nervous that I’d mess up somehow. Right before I started my presentation, Dan, the CEO, decided to joke around with me and put me right at ease. I felt comfortable and confident throughout the presentation because of it, and afterwards my supervisor and the CEO said that I did a great job with my presentation.
Q: What was the most valuable thing that you learned during your time at GoodSuite?
A: The most valuable thing that I learned during my time at GoodSuite would probably be learning how to manage my time effectively. At school, you’re given a class schedule, and based on that you can figure out the best times to get your homework done, but at work, there’s no schedule at all, just projects to do and 8 hours a day to get them done. Learning how to manage my time effectively is the most valuable thing I’ve learned because it is the one skill that I can take anywhere, no matter what I end up doing.
