As an entrepreneur, I’m always soaking up new information on how to be the best at what I do and ways to make my company better. One lesson that has stuck with me is to “hire tough and manage easy.”
I started the JessicaSimien.com Internship Program for two reasons. First, I wanted to give students and grads an opportunity to get real world experience by putting the skills they learned in the classroom to use. Secondly, the internship program is the only way to be hired into my company, like an extended interview so to speak. I’ve learned that in a normal interview a person will say whatever they think will get them the job. They will smile and hand in their resume and boost you up until you’re telling them that they’ve gotten the gig.
