Hometown: Somerville, MA
Major: Organizational Communication
Internship Sponsor: Tommy Doyle’s LLC/Celtic Partnership
Primary Responsibilities: As an intern with upper level management at Tommy Doyle’s and the Celtic Partnership, I have been responsible for: the development of a weekly inventory system that reveals consumption, basic accounting- including the daily balancing of house money, weekly orders of all beverages, maintenance of the desired GP of sales, as well as the day-to-day operations of the business.
Blog Entry: Having the opportunity to intern for Tommy Doyle’s/Celtic Partnership has been a very worthwhile experience because restaurant management is a possible career path. I am receiving hands-on experience in managing a business which will ultimately help me decide if this career path is right for me.
I was given the developmental task of creating an inventory system using Microsoft Excel. The completion of this task has made me feel that I have personally made a contribution that adds value to the business as a whole. I have learned how to manage resources to produce maximum profitability, as well as the proper way to efficiently maintain inventory, which helps keep costs moderate.
I value this internship and the experience I am getting will strengthen my management performance if I choose to follow this career path after graduation.
