If you have been following along in my blog, you are aware that I applied for a few Professional Internships and actually got an interview for the Account Management Position at Disney’s Yellow Shoes Creative group. Today I received an email from the person who interviewed me stating that i did not get the internship. In the email he thanked me for my interest and stated he was “impressed with the energy and enthusiasm you displayed toward our company” but could not offer me the position.
I was pleased to have received an email from an actual person rather than the computer generated no longer in consideration email. I responded to the email asking what i could improve upon with regards to by resume and interview skills. I also asked if i could contact him about setting up a Meet and Greet while I am participating in the Disney College Program. My Interviewer got back to me within 48 hours and gave me tips to making my experiences translate better on my resume and said that i could definitely set up a meet and greet which is exciting.
Yes, I am disappointed that I did not get this internship but, I am very excited to be able to participate in the Disney College Program. One thing I was going to be disappointed about if I was to be granted the opportunity to do the Professional Internship, was that I would not be able to do the Disney College Program and have that expierence. I look forward to the friendships I will make and the experiences I will be able to have. Let the planning begin!! Move in day is in 42 days!
