There are so many things happening in the next ten days that I am pretty excited about. Not only is the Anniversary Sale still going on, but it is also time for 60 day reviews and many other things. In the next ten days my intern project is due, one more class to attend, lunch and interview with the store manager, and my graduation from the intern program.
It's a pretty bittersweet feeling, because I'm excited that I've almost completed the intern program, but I'm also sad that it'll be over. I have learned so much and improved so much. I feel more comfortable on the sales floor while interacting with customers and I've made some good connections as well!
The other day I was talking with the manager of the designer floor and he asked me if he was to offer me an assistant manager position right after I graduate would I take it, and he wanted my honest answer. I told him that from what I've learned you really need to know how to do everything and gain as much experience as you can before teaching someone else, and that two months isn't enough time to really excel in every possible aspect of being an assistant manager. I believe it would be smarter to do sales a bit longer to better myself, and then I would be able to take on that task. He agreed with me and was glad that I had realized how much better it is to gain more experience before jumping into something you may not be ready for. With that being said, hopefully my future at Nordstrom is a bright one with lots of opportunity!
