I am Amanda Rose, a Masters of Human Resource Management student about to start an exciting internship between my first and second year in the program! This summer, I will be working with Shell Oil Company in Houston, TX as a Human Resource Intern on the Commercial Supply and Distribution HR team. I could not be more excited to travel to Texas for this amazing opportunity.
I graduated from Green High School in Northeastern Ohio and then attended the University of Mount Union in Alliance, OH where I received my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. While there, I was fortunate enough to be a member of 3 championship basketball teams and participate in the Division III NCAA tournament. I was also a member of Alpha Delta Pi sorority. I have previously interned at Fannie May Confections, The University of Mount Union, and The Timken Company, all in human resource roles. Those experiences led me to the MHRM program at Ohio State and eventually to my internship with Shell.
At The Ohio State University, I am a Graduate Assistant in the Office of Career Management and have gained valuable experience that I am sure I will use during my internship this summer! I was also involved in the MHRM council and participated in events such as case competitions and BuckeyeThon through that organization.
I have yet to find out what types of projects I will be working on this summer but I cannot wait to begin work on Tuesday, May 21! I know I am in for a summer full of new experiences, learning, and fun! Not only do I hope to grow professionally in a position that is sure to be challenging and full of surprises, but I hope to grow personally in my first experience living outside of Ohio.
I am excited to share my summer experience with all of you! I hope you enjoy and please feel free to leave questions or comments for me to respond to!
