11 June 2018 - 1:47 pm My year as an Enterprise Intern

As my year as an Enterprise Intern comes to an end, here’s a reflection of my time at The University of Sheffield Enterprise;

1. Societies Fair
My first role was representing USE at the Activities Fair. I really enjoyed interacting with new students, other society members and of course promoting USE; the bright yellow building next to St Georges Church!
2. Skill Build
I helped to facilitate 2 Skill Build programs that focused on learning Enterprise and Entrepreneurship skills. This experience was an amazing opportunity to network with external speakers in the professional field whilst practicing my communication and presentation skills.
3. Enterprise 101
The opportunity to deliver my own event has been the most memorable part of my experience at USE. From the initial research to presentation preparation to leading the actual workshop; this was an enthralling experience and definitely something outside my comfort zone!

Overall, this opportunity helped me strengthen my enterprise skills and I’m so glad to have been able to work alongside the other amazing and inspirational enterprise interns! This role provides a great learning and supportive experience; 10/10 would recommend!

I challenged myself to break out of my comfort zone, and you should do the same! Continue reading “Enterprise Education: Enterprise 101” »
