A love of learning has been blooming among interns on Long Island this summer. 1-800-FLOWERS.com, Inc. has been proudly hosting its largest Summer Internship Program in company history over the past several weeks, with 43 ambitious and eager interns working out of the Carle Place headquarters full-time.
During the 10-week program, which runs through Aug. 10, interns are gaining invaluable experience working with teams in specific areas of professional discipline, including social media, marketing, human resources, and business development and strategy. Hailing from schools such as Adelphi University, LIU Post, Molloy College and Hofstra University, among many others, these interns have brought new thinking and fresh energy into the office.
The 1-800-FLOWERS.com, Inc. company has also given its intern class opportunities to participate in informative lunch-and-learn sessions with upper management, volunteer with local nonprofit organizations as part of the Summer of a Million Smiles (SOMS) program, and attend fun events like Smile Farms’ Citi Field fundraiser, which involved an on-field experience for the full class.
Additionally, the interns have been taking part in an extensive Internship Project, which will culminate in different sub-groups presenting proposals on how the company can increase engagement among millennial customers.
