This morning we started off The Intern Challenge with a Leadership Panel led by three Managing Directors- Tony Samer (San Francisco), Kim Dickerson (Metro DC), and Tyler Chase (Houston). We learned about their personal lives through quick fire interviews and listened to their advice for the workplace.
When asked how our interns could be successful, Tyler gave the advice to leverage your mentors and advisors and to always ask questions. Kim said you should try something you’ve never done before and not be afraid to fail, and Tony recommended our interns listen, be positive, and word hard.
During the quick fire 60 second interviews, we learned quite a few interesting facts about our Managing Directors:
Tony: The best place he’s ever traveled for work was Singapore, and if he had a superpower, he would be able to time travel.
Kim: She collected stamps as a child, and if she didn’t work for Protiviti, she’d want to be at Habitat for Humanity.
Tyler: His favorite season is football season, and if he could be a professional athlete, he’d be a pro-golfer.
We always appreciate our leadership taking the time out of their schedules to speak with our interns!
