David Martin is an Economics major graduating in 2020. This winter break, David had an externship with Andela in San Francisco, CA.
Why did you want to do this externship? I wanted to gain an exposure to a start-up environment
What did you do during this job shadow experience? For half of the day, I shadowed Account Executive Michelle Vock.
What did you learn from the externship? From her, I learned valuable relationship and decision-making skills involving sales. During lunch, we discussed my future and how I could get to where I wanted to be. The industry was exciting! The collaborative environment featured a Kombucha-scented atmosphere and groovy vibes. It was truly a start-up.
Anything else you’d like to share about your job shadow experience? Overall the experience helped place my goals into perspective, and I’m happy to have done it.
