Inside the 1800Flowers Offices, INTERNal Perspective

The INTERNal Perspective of Web Marketing Intern Kirsten Knott

August 24, 2012

Even she’s majoring in public relations, Web Marketing Intern Kirsten Knott describes how interning at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM has her thinking about her future career path:

I have learned so many valuable insights from my internship at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, but the main thing I’ve gained here is a newfound direction. I have always known I wanted to pursue a career in public relations, but I was unsure of what type of company or industry I wanted to work in. During my internship, I had the opportunity to observe and experience the dynamics of a company that cares. Everyone I have had the opportunity to meet has not only been dedicated to their job, but also to the Summer of a Million Smiles initiative. It’s refreshing and reassuring to know that such a large company has managed to leverage its business success to give back to the community. As a graduating senior, I now know that I want to find a career that balances both professional and ethical success at a company that understands the magnitude of giving back. My time here has given me confidence that I won’t lose what is important to me once I enter the workforce.
