Management Internships Spotlight
Rick Hahn '15
Rick Hahn, a senior management major, is currently a project management intern for Entre Computer Services, an IT solutions provider. Rick's responsibilities are focused on clients in small to medium sized businesses. He is gaining experience in how a project manager deals with projects using industry tools and practices.
"I have learned how to present myself more officially in the business setting. I have also learned several new and more efficient business processes and how they are actually implemented, which is hard to do in a classroom setting," says Hahn.
The most challenging aspect of the job for Hahn is the necessity of thinking outside the box. "I think having the ability to be creative and think about ideas that are not just the "textbook" definition is a challenging part of the job," says Hahn.
After graduating, Hahn hopes to secure a position either in Rochester or near home in New York City as a project manager in the construction or electrical fields.
