(Editor’s Note: Kyle Smith is an intern in our Marketing Department. Today, he shares perspective on participating in a summer college internship program. Stay tuned for more in this series.)
For the 40 million Americans that move annually, about 13 percent move their residences in the summer months. That equates to more than 5,000,000 people moving every summer! To support this productive time of year, JK Moving Services employs college interns every summer. We’d like to introduce you to some of our talented interns.
JK Moving Services is pleased to introduce you to Patrick Wang, our International Services intern. Patrick is from China and is currently studying to obtain his master’s degree in economics at American University. In his free time, Patrick likes to try out new things. Recently he joined a swing dance group in Herndon, spoke in a live webinar at the U.S. Department of State, and is saving money to get his private pilot’s license. Patrick joins us after previously working for a venture capital fund.
In International Services, Patrick is helping arrange the relocation of clients all over the world. Patrick coordinates air shipments with our global moving partners. He enjoys the customer interaction and seeing the successful international relocation of a client.
Since arriving at JK, Patrick has spoken highly of his colleagues. “I think an important factor of what makes your internship special is the colleagues you have. Robert (Albrecht) is an excellent mentor; he teaches me everything he knows and whenever I have a question, all I have to do is ask. He is busy himself, but he’s always available to help. I think as an intern, it is very important that you have a mentor available and willing to teach you.”
Upon graduation Patrick wants to use his knowledge in international economics and the global market to become an international marketing and sales specialist. JK Moving Services is excited to have Patrick Wang as a member of the International Services team!
