Hello CESA blog world!
I’m Josh Le, a 3rd year BCom student majoring in Marketing, Cooperative Education. I worked with Walmart Canada as a Management Intern over the Spring/Summer (May-August) 2012 term. The internship is open to the Marketing 465, School of Retailing Internship Program, and Coop students, but Walmart is looking to open up the internship to all Business students sometime in the future.
Josh Le’s Managament Internship at Walmart Canada
This first post is meant to give a preview of the 10-part blogging series that I’m calling Josh Le’s Management Internship at Walmart Canada (JLMIWC – Walmart loves acronyms). To contextualize this blog series: I completed my 4 month coop term with Walmart at the end of August and I’m back in school for the Fall/Winter 2012-2013 school year. I want to share my experiences with fellow BCom and coop students about Walmart and the retail sector. Each post will be written based on my coop journal, personal reflections, and big learning points along the way. This is approximately 7 weeks after my last shift at Walmart Canada, but I’ve gained some valuable skills that I still use in the school setting. I may add or subtract an article or two depending on my course-load at school, but this is my public commitment to completing this blog series!
