Remington Zience, a Florist Design intern in the Merchandising Department, gives his insights into his summer experience at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM:
“When I first arrived at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, I had no clue that I would be involved in so many different initiatives. As a Merchandising Intern in Florist Design, my duties have ranged from hands-on experience in the design studio and creating a product-planning timeline to working on marketing strategies for the products. But my greatest learning experience this summer has been realizing how important it is to be versatile and flexible in your work. My internship has truly showed me how the roles of individuals within the organization are far broader than I had anticipated. From this, I can see how important it is to embrace and learn as much as possible from each experience. This is an invaluable lesson that I’ve gained as I begin my senior year as a Finance major at Miami University of Ohio.?
