National Intern Day is July 29! We are so thankful for all of the hard work that our interns do and love that Promoboxx is the launchpad for their professional careers.

We are celebrating the two interns that have been working hard for us all summer, Olivia Neiman and Nate Kelsey! Olivia and Nate help our retailers and our team in Customer Support.

Learn more about their journey at Promoboxx below!

Olivia Neiman

Where do you go to school and when do you graduate?

I am about to start my senior year at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor and I am graduating in December 2021! 

Is this your first time interning with Promoboxx?

Yes, I started part time at Promoboxx while I was finishing my second semester of junior year and then began as a full time intern in May of this year. 

What has been your favorite experience while interning at PBXX?

My favorite experience has been getting to know my wonderful team! I have learned so much from my team and could not have asked for a better group of people to surround myself with every day! 

What has been the biggest take away from your internship at PBXX?

My biggest takeaway is that anything can be learned and mastered with enough practice and a good support system. Mistakes have to be made sometimes to learn but even the most difficult things can be learned with time. 

What are your plans for after your internship?

Following my internship, I plan to graduate from UMich in December and then begin a program at Columbia University in January studying data analytics. The experience I have gained at Promoboxx along with my program at Columbia will jump-start my prospective career in Business analytics.  

 

Nate Kelsey

Where do you go to school and when do you graduate?

I am currently a rising Junior at Bowdoin College, so I will graduate in May of 2023. 

Is this your first time interning with Promoboxx?

I have been interning with Promoboxx for almost the past year (I started on September  15th of 2020). I actually took a year off from college this past year and worked with Promoboxx instead. 

What has been your favorite experience while interning at PBXX?

My favorite experience has been having such an awesome and flexible team. Not only are they an absolute joy to work with, but they have been incredibly accommodating of me having this year off in the middle of College. This has allowed me to travel while also working so I have been able to live in New Hampshire, Vermont, Colorado, and Hawaii all while working with Promoboxx!

What has been the biggest take away from your internship at PBXX?

My biggest takeaway has been realizing the vast impact your manager/boss has on your day-to-day experience in the office. Working under Addie and Fran has been absolutely fantastic. Not only are they totally supportive and understanding but they are also fun-loving and personable. Having these two as supervisors allowed me to be my most productive and happy self at Promoboxx. Coming out of this internship, I have learned that finding a boss that suits you will be just as important as a job that does the same. 

What are your plans for after your internship?

After my internship, I will go back to school in the Fall! I am excited to return to campus and live in a college atmosphere, have a great soccer season and most importantly have a dining hall!
