Blog Entry:
Stepping into the business world for the first time at AspenCross, I had no idea what to expect. I had mixed emotions of excitement and nervousness. I was nervous to see if my decision in choosing a career in business would be the right decision for me.


Thrillingly, I believe I did make the right choice to be in the business environment because I like the aspect of the work itself and the feeling of a sense of accomplishment. This decision has paid off very well because I am feeling confident about getting a job. I feel that I am much more prepared and have developed greater knowledge, technical skills and confidence as a result of my internship.


By interning at AspenCross and entering into the “real world”, I have come to realize that material and text in classrooms can only take you so far and that the business environment is a completely different realm. I am gaining a broader education by completing detailed business projects and learning distinctive material that you cannot learn in a classroom. I work with computer programs that are specifically designed for business companies including Smart Office. I am also gaining technical skills by using programs such as Microsoft Excel at advanced levels.
