I know I owe you a blog on my projects and my work life, but I just gotta let this blog out first!
What did you do Monday night? I had to work late. With Nestle, it never ends, well, the fun never ends. My buddy and I went to a Ludacris concert at the Muskegon Summer Celebration. AMAZING! Nestle assigns every intern a buddy and gives them a budget to do fun things, pretty sweet deal, right? I think so. Corndog+Softserve+Ludacris=Nestle is an awesome company that cares about a work/life balance and developing its employees through great experiences, in and outside of the office!
Of course, we work hard AND play hard. I have been meeting people from every department, not just procurement. Having an interest in marketing, I have been able to speak with people involved with marketing services, product development, sensory testing and focus groups, and so many more! It’s great to see how every part of the business ties together.
Now when you think of supply chain, it’s not just the factory operations, the logistics, the purchasing, it’s the raw materials too! Thursday I am going pea harvesting–think Dirty Jobs. I am hoping to get my hands dirty and learn about the entire harvest process. I’ll definitely bring my camera–get ready for some great pictures!
