Tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Nikki Brown and I am from Houston, Texas. I am a senior majoring in communication with a minor in event planning. Auburn has been the best four years of my life and I can’t believe they are almost over! Some career aspirations I have after graduating are wedding and special event planning, sports and entertainment and pop culture.

How did you find out about your new internship?

The Post Oak Hotel in Houston is a 5-star hotel that is located in the heart of Uptown. I have always been interested in hospitality and I knew that as soon as I got the opportunity to fulfill my goals at the Post Oak that I would not be disappointed.

Did CLA Career Services help you prepare for your internship and achieve your internship goals?

CLA Career Services helped me in more ways than I can express. I was able to achieve my goals and get the internship of my dreams thanks to the constant guidance of my CLA career coach. They played a huge role in my success!

How has your experience been?

My internship has been an experience that has taught me more than I could’ve ever imagined. I was anxious at first while going through the process, but with help from CLA Career Services, I found myself to be successful in many different ways.

What advice would you give other students who are looking for internships/careers?

The advice I would give students looking for internships/careers is to be patient, persistent and always stay true to yourself!
