Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Claire Wilson and I am a current sophomore at the University of Pittsburgh studying marketing and finance. This summer I am doing an internship with Giant Eagle on their customer relations management team. I am extremely excited about this internship and I am looking forward to working with their team! This internship is remote so I will be living at home in Philadelphia and waitressing on the side as well.
The international experience that I will be participating in is the Ireland Plus 3 program. I chose this program as I looked into them my freshman year, but they were canceled due to the pandemic. I am looking forward to visiting different companies, exploring Dublin, and learning about Irish culture.
For what I would like to accomplish personally, I have never traveled abroad alone, therefore I would like to learn that skill of traveling alone. I am also excited to meet more Pitt Business Students that are also on this trip. Also, for what I would like to accomplish professionally, I hope to be a more well-rounded professional and see how businesses operate abroad. Throughout this study abroad, we will also have assignments, therefore for my academic development, I would like to perfect the balance of keeping up with assignments as well as exploring Ireland.
