Hi! My name is Jaclyn Milian, and I am a rising senior at Williams College. I am also the first ever Project Management Intern at Alexander Interactive (Ai). I just wanted to introduce myself and share what I hope to gain from my time as an Ai PM Intern.
I hope to gain experience with the lifecycle that projects take and the different ways that progress is tracked. I am eager to understand the ins and outs of budget tracking, milestone management and planning out realistic and manageable timelines. Having never used Basecamp nor Harvest, two programs that the PM team uses to manage projects, I am excited to gain some experience with these programs and expand my skill set.
Coming from a liberal arts college, I have not had the chance to have a work environment experience. Being in the offices of Ai, I can already say that I have learned some new skills. I can now properly title a document for easy identification, write a blog post explaining my hopes for this internship and navigate the internal wiki. Keep in mind that I’ve only been here for a few hours. I am just excited to get started on a project and learn all that Ai is willing to teach me.
Ultimately I hope to gain skills that will stay with me for the rest of my life and have a great experience working with Ai.
