Internship Spotlight: Roma Snowboards Sales Intern

Name: Jascha Herlihy

Organization: Roma Snowboards

Title: Sales Intern

I interned at Rome Snowboards in the sales department Fall 2018. Through this I’ve learned a lot about the outdoor industry. Not only was this critical for me determining my path of what I want to do post college but it widened my lens of pathways I can take to end up where I want to be. I was really lucky to join the team when I did because I was able to experience an acquisition and partial merger. Through this I learned a lot about internal controls and software development and routing as well as communications. These challenges that I had to overcome were a unique experience that showed me how critical internal controls are when it comes time for acquisitions. Not all of my time was spent behind a computer though, I was lucky to experience the fall sales meeting and add my input to the new developments for Rome. As 1/3 of the female staff in the office I think it was a great experience to get my feet wet in a male dominated industry and see my potential.
