This guest post was written by Kyle, about his intern experience with us this summer. 

I am a sophomore at the University of Central Florida, majoring in Computer Engineering.  I did not know what to expect coming into the IT Department at Yellowstone Landscape, but it absolutely blew my expectations out of the water!  I have learned so much about the working world in such a short time and gained a lot of knowledge about the world of technology.

My Mentors have been fantastic!  Melody Schlenker, the Service Support Manager, taught me about discipline and how important it is to be vocal and ask questions, and to stay on top of tasks when the office becomes busy.  My other Mentor, Senior Programmer, Gabe Perez gave me the foundation for learning and understanding the programs that I have been using throughout my internship and provided great support with my project.

My “internship project” focused on creating a form for Capital Expenditures which would increase efficiency for requests and approvals.  In the past, employees would email a request back and forth resulting in long wait periods and missing information.  The form gives a platform for people to submit their request and it automatically distributes to whoever it needs to go to.  This entire process taught me a lot about patience since I was learning a whole new program.  Through perseverance, problem-solving, and the help of my Mentor, Gabe, we created the form which has been presented to the company leadership and successfully launched.

Overall, I was, and still am surprised by how much I have learned.  I am excited to take these learning experiences and expand on them throughout my academic and professional career and Yellowstone Landscape has given me the platform to do this!
