Something I really appreciate and find unique about Source One is how diligent everyone is about explaining how the work that I do fits in with the procurement process.
My Source One experience has been outstanding so far—the projects that I receive have real tangible value and everyone is incredibly friendly. The office has a great culture that is as much about performance as it is about learning. Something I really appreciate and find unique about Source One is how diligent everyone is about explaining how the work that I do fits in with the procurement process. This is important because it develops my knowledge base and gives value to my work. I am interested in pursuing a career in the supply side of business whether it be in supply chain management or supply chain financing. Source One has been able to provide me with a deeper look into the supply chain and how to maximize cost savings for businesses. My goal for this internship is to deepen my understanding of the procurement process and gain experience in different industries.
Among my first tasks were projects involving benchmarking and spend analysis. Every member of the Source One team that I had the opportunity to work with has been eager to teach me their tips, and I have great willingness to learn. Even through these very first interactions, I was able to participate in a necessary part of a greater goal. Although my academic coursework is not directed toward supply chain, the skills learned at Source One are applicable in a variety of settings. This experience so far has offered a unique perspective that I will inevitably apply in the future and be reminded of how valuable my time at Source One was. This is easily what I appreciate most about this internship and the opportunity to gain experience and learn outside the classroom.
After serving in multiple Communication departments of primarily non-profit entities with a global presence or affiliates, I decided it was fundamental I also work in the for-profit sector to ascertain the best fit for my future career. Source One has been pivotal for my future career – the firm has offered insights into the complex minutia and mechanisms of serving various clients of versatile backgrounds, and continues to provide me with extensive experience in content generation and promotional materials, along with an introduction to procurement practices and supply-chain business.
Beyond industry information, the Source One team has been incredibly welcoming. Certainly, Source One has created an air of affability that makes anyone feel right at home, encouraging an atmosphere of helpfulness and room for continuous growth. Indubitably, in the future post-graduation, my Source One experiences and the Communication skills I gained from the consulting industry will continue to resonate and guide my future choices.
