“I worked as a Summer Intern at Clothes Less Traveled the past three consecutive summers. During my summers at Clothes Less Traveled, I helped out in the back sorting room and completed various intern projects. These projects consisted of a local thrift store price analysis report, the creation of the store Instagram account, a shopper survey, a volunteer safety powerpoint and many more! My internship was a wonderful first work experience for me and I enjoyed discussing it with potential employers during my interviews! Many took interest in my knowledge and understanding of non profit work and liked that I was able to tailor some of my intern projects towards my business major. I will be graduating in May from The University of Georgia with a major in Finance and a Certificate in Legal Studies. This summer I will begin a career in Corporate Finance Advisory working as an Analyst in Atlanta, GA. I have enjoyed working along side very kind, genuine, and fun loving staff and volunteers! The mission and people that are a part of this organization made my time as a Clothes Less Traveled Summer Intern a very positive and enjoyable experience that I will not forget.”
“The internship at Clothes Less Traveled really prepared me for my interview and career at J. Crew. Firstly, one of the biggest reasons the manager said she hired me was because of my work at a not for profit organization. She told me that she had worked at a Women’s Shelter and said it was important to see both sides of the income gap to really have a respect for everyone. You soon realize that everyone has a story and that treating them with respect is the only way you can get anywhere in the world. At Clothes Less Traveled there were always people from different walks of life and circumstances – all with a different story. Secondly, she said that the fact I had worked retail previously while maintaining the other jobs assigned to me at Clothes Less Traveled was important for me to understand how to multi-task. After my interview, she told me I had gotten the job; the only reason she was hiring me was because of my experience at Clothes Less Traveled. ”
