Where are you interning?
Saks 5th Off Avenue in Dallas, TX.

How did you go about getting your internship? What steps did you take?
I applied through McCombs OCR. I only had to send in my resume and then
participate in an hour long interview.


What classes do you think were the most valuable in getting your internship?

Chinese class. The recruiters son was also learning Chinese, so we had a lot to
talk about on the subject.

What advice would you give to others as they search for an internship?
Do not apply for a company with a big name, but a company you are interested in,
that way you actually seem excited in the interview

Can you describe how your interview went?
I interviewed with two different recruiters on the same day. They tried to see
how well I could hold a conversation, rather than focus on interview questions
specifically.

What were the hardest questions they asked in your interview?
Why I wanted to come to UT Austin.
