The Millennium Alliance had the pleasure of welcoming Josh Green to our family this summer, as he took on the role of a marketing and sales intern position. Josh was a huge help in the office, and we are sad to see him go!
Before Josh takes off to start a new semester of school at Vanderbilt University, we were able to get some last minute thoughts from him, reflecting on his summer.
The Millennium Alliance was so lucky to have you intern for us this summer! What did you learn the most while working here?
While at Millenium I learned how to sell and market a product effectively. To be candid, before my time at Millenium, I wasn’t intrigued by the concept of sales. Having been surrounded by the employees here at 475 Park for the past three months, I now understand the underlying methodology behind having a passion for a product, such as our great events.
I have the utmost respect for Millennium’s employees because they possess a certain tenacity and determination that is incomparable to any job in any sector of business. Millennium has been so successful not just because they are connoisseurs in what they do, but mainly because they have instilled a fierce work ethic in each of its employees.
What are the most valuable skills you learned during your internship?
My experiences at Millenium can be conveyed as a microcosm for my future professional life. You can never be scared. Just as how you can never know whether to CEO or CTO will pick up the phone, in life, you have to be ambitious and be brave enough to reach your goals. Always stick to the plan.
Though at time closing might seem like a mere formality, you must proceed because you can never be sure what the outcome may be. And lastly, when it seems like you haven’t made a deal in forever, you must be persistent because you never know when the next opportunity will arise.
What was your favorite part of working at The Millennium Alliance?
“My favorite part of Millennium was the culture. To walk in every day to such a stimulating environment with such motivated and driven individuals was a blessing.”
The employees are continually inspiring each other, and that type of galvanizing spirit is so prevalent throughout the workplace. Keeping positive vibes flowing through a sales floor is no easy duty, but at Millennium, it’s a staple. It is such a rarity to find senior directors who care so much about the company’s success that they are continually collaborating and training employees. Although my time at Millennium was short, I hope to find the culture that is comparable to Millennium’s not just in my future internships, but in any prospective employer.
