What was your favorite part about the Bucks Go Pro 2.0 program?

Being a part of the program you can tell the amount of hard work and dedication the athletic department and employers put into preparing us for our careers post-graduation. The networking event is something I found to be extremely beneficial as I was able to make valuable connections which was one of my favorite parts about the program. -Liza Hernandez

Why did you choose your internship and what were some major takeaways?

I chose Big Lots because I wanted to work for a large nationally recognized company that was going to provide me with the necessary tools and resources to get the most out of my internship. I learned so much from getting exposed to many different projects and seeing how the different areas of business work in a large retail company. - Liza Hernandez
