Hi, Haley again! This week is all about: “Working with a Housewife: What it's really like Behind the Scenes”!!
Let me first say—this has been the coolest summer job I have ever had. When I found out this past Spring that I officially got accepted as the Yummie Marketing Intern, I literally jumped out of my seat in my History of Psychology class and started speed walking to share the news to my friends and family. Not only was I so excited to learn about the fashion marketing world, but also that I would be working with Heather Thomson! As an avid RHONY fan, I watched each episode, point to the TV screen, and shout, “I’m working with her this summer!!”—weird, but so true.
Although I have been here for over a month, I still find myself getting star struck when Heather enters the room or simply walks past me in the office… I’m like a 12-year-old One Direction fan. It’s the weirdest feeling watching someone on TV and then seeing them in person on a daily basis! She always has the biggest smile on her face and welcomes me with the kindest regards. I have sat in a few marketing meetings with Heather and the rest of the team, and am able to see first-hand what a business woman Heather is! I have learned so much from her already, and I know there is only more to come!!
That’s all for today!!
