Tonight is my last night in good ol’ Minnesota. For the past 8 months I been up here working with the Best Buy Retail Web Development team, part of the overall Communications Team for the entire US Store Operations, as a paid-intern/paid-corperate employee working on website design and other fun projects.
With all the ups and downs I have had personally while up here it’s still been a challenge and it’s hard even though I lived away from home since I was 12 years old.
This experience I had gained from this work and the amount of confidence that I have in myself has really been boosted in a way that I know that I have the stuff that Fortune 500 Companies are looking for in a decided hard working programmer. I have gotten nothing but compliments today from the entire leadership team within my department and the co-workers I work with. I said my good byes to all the full-time corporate employees who I grown to be good friends with and will take the experience of what goes on in the Corporate world back to my store and in life to better help people.
If things turn out good, I will be back up here starting in January 2011 to help out with more projects and help inspire others that anyone can make a difference.
Thanks Minnesota for all the fish!
