Sungeun, a sophomore at Catholic Memorial High School is following in the footsteps of his dad who founded an international business spanning Europe, Asia and South America. Sungeun expressed a desire to learn about American business “from the ground up” and in particular, an internet business.
We placed Sungeun on an administrative internship at Wayfair, the fastest growing e-commerce company in Boston. Previous internships there had been reserved for college juniors and seniors only, but after Sungeun’s interview, the recruiters were pleased to grant him a summer internship. Sungeun told us that his experience was invaluable. He learned about the company’s business model, best practices and training and development. More importantly, he learned about the culture of the American workplace and made valuable business connections for the future.
