"I helped with the transition from a paper-based document system to an online platform. This included coordinating trainings and communicating with stakeholders, which improved my communication and leadership skills. I also planned out an internship program for the company. I put what I learned in 15.279 Business Communications to practice during presentations and meetings. I also found skills from clubs [involved back at MIT] helpful. I am more confident in both making and giving presentations. I also learned how to figure out people's priorities and how to align them with the goal of a project. I also learned that I need to be more assertive. Everyone is very busy and it's a waste a time to wait until people are free because they may never be. Ask the question, send the email, and be confident."
