Sports Marketing FP&A Intern

May - August 2019 • Baltimore, MD

What I liked

There were a handful of things I liked during my time at Under Armour. The first of which was the welcoming and light-hearted culture the company offered. In addition, my project for the summer made an impact on the company and is being implemented as we speak. I was able to meet with various executives and other teammates within the company to get insights on what I could implement in my project to make it sustainable. Throughout the internship, we had weekly meet and greets with SVP's and other higher-ups in the company, as well as panels to hear the C-Suite employees talk about their journey and insights on life. Lastly, the Under Armour Rookie Program (Interns are called Rookies at Under Armour) puts on a sports league for all its intern to play in over the course of the summer, which was a highlight.

What I wish was different

I thought my summer internship was as close to flawless as it could have been, except for two things. One thing I wish did not happen was that I was removed from sitting next to my team about three weeks in (but also was nice because I got moved to Rookie Island, which was an area of about 10 interns). Although it was nice sitting near the other Rookies, I was not as productive and did not learn as much as I could have if I was sitting with my team. The second thing I wish had been different was putting all of the Rookies on the same side of the harbor in apartments. It was difficult for me to get to know a lot of the Rookies on the other side of the harbor since I did not have a car.

Advice

Stay Humble and Hungry. You want to stay humble in your work life because there is always room to improve and aspects within the company or skills to learn. It is also important to stay hungry to continue to better yourself from an intellectual perspective as well as asking for work once you have completed your given assignments.

Rookie, Retail Leadership

May - August 2019 • Hershey, PA

What I liked

I loved that it was a rotational program and that everyone was really dedicated to helping me learn.

What I wish was different

I wish there was something tangible that we got at the end so we could have something to add to a portfolio (or even guidance on how we could create something that would look good on a résumé/personal website. Even without this, the program is phenomenal.

Advice

Take every opportunity to learn something new.

Global Analytics Intern

May - August 2019 • Baltimore, MD

What I liked

I like that I was given the opportunity to work on a project that would be beneficial to the company. I was given access to real company data and other resources that I needed to provide a valuable deliverable. I also liked that I was encouraged to learn as much as I could and build my network while I had access to variety of professionals with different backgrounds.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have taken the time to shadow people who worked in departments across the company. I also wish I would have spent more time developing stronger relationships with the other interns.

Advice

I would encourage people to try to learn something from everyone you encounter. People have so much to offer based on their existing knowledge and previous experiences. During the conversation the information that is shared may not seem useful but you never know when something that appears to have no initial value could become useful.
