2013 INTERNal Perspective: Kirsten Knott | 1-800-Flowers.com

July 27, 2013

Web Marketing intern Kirsten Knott is a returning intern here at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM. Hear how she has learned from last year’s internship and used that knowledge to help her throughout the summer:

Web Marketing Intern Kirsten Knott“Last summer, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to intern with 1-800-FLOWERS.COM. Last year I learned a lot about the corporate world, the flowers business and who I want to be as a soon-to-be professional. However, the biggest thing I learned during my time at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM was the concept of corporate social reasonability. Before 1-800-FLOWERS.COM I wasnโ€™t aware that businesses implemented giving back into their business models. After seeing how 1-800-FLOWERS.COM embraced this concept in various ways, including their Summer of a Millions Smiles campaign, I was extremely inspired.

After leaving 1-800-FLOWERS.COM at the end of last summer, I went back to Iona College where I dedicated a majority of my senior year researching and studying corporate social reasonability. This concept was something I grew an immense passion for because it connected my two passions of public relations and mission work.

This summer, I was ecstatic to be able to come back to the company that inspired me as a second time Web-Marketing Intern. During my past few months with the company I have vastly expanded on the knowledge I learned last summer. I also have the privilege to notice the huge strides and improvements the company has made in the past year. Itโ€™s uplifting to see so many people work to learn and make an already successful company even better. I will always be honored and grateful to say that 1-800-FLOWERS.COM is a company that played a huge part in my professional development.”
