Since summer is officially over, we sadly had to say goodbye to our wonderful summer interns and pass along the baton to our new Fall Intern! We can not wait to help her grow and provide hands-on experience as well as s allowing them to fully interact with all our managers and co-workers. We look forward to giving our intern a chance to develop the skills they need to be successful in all their future endeavors. Here is a glimpse of what our intern in the Human Resources Department, and what she has planned for her future.
Name: Alexandra Raissipour
Where are you from: I’m from all over actually. I was born in Boston, MA, moved to Seattle 3 weeks after I was born. I was in Seattle until right before the start of 8th grade when the whole family moved back to MA and I graduated high school there. I currently live in the city while my parents live in Windermere, Florida.
Where do you attend school: On the Upper East Side of Manhattan at Marymount Manhattan College.
What is your major: I am Public Relations and Strategic Communications Major.
When are you graduating: May 2019, it’s my final year!
What is your dream job: When I was younger, I was really into theater and musicals. So I wanted to keep that in my world but wanted to feel some sort of security. I would love to be a publicist for Broadway stars one day.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years: In 5 years, I see myself working my way up the ladder. I would love to have some experience in the publicity industry and the Broadway world. I love the personal interactions, so this is the perfect mix of corporate/business life and one on one personal interaction. I would hope to still be in New York City as well, but I will go wherever my job takes me.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years: In 10 years, I hopefully see myself married if not engages. Family is extremely important to me and I think there is no reason to be so successful if you have no one to share it with. Hopefully, I am deep into my career if not a mother as well.
Who is your role model and why: It sounds incredibly cliche, but my role model has always been my dad. He is the hardest working individual I have ever met and also one of the most loving. My dad has worked in the tech industry for over 30 years and he has only wanted the best for my sisters and I. He has worked his way up from fast food to where he is now and it’s incredibly admirable in my opinion. My sisters and
I have always been so incredibly fortunate and loved. He makes all of us want to make him proud.
What is the number 1 thing you want to accomplish in life: Everyone has their own idea of accomplishments but I truly believe that if I accomplish my own happiness in life then it doesn’t matter. Working hard is something you should always be doing and I would love to actually accomplish my dream of being a publicist for Broadway stars, but if I am unhappy in my life, that means nothing. Happiness is the number one goals always.
