As my internship with Quicken Loans comes to a close, I’ve begun to reflect on it as a whole this summer, and think of all the things that I’ll miss. I’ll miss the many welcoming and friendly people that I’ve met and grown to love here at Quicken Loans.
I learned to appreciate all the hard work that everyone here does. I’ve met so many kind and caring individuals who made my internship experience even more amazing. I’d like to personally thank all of the closing teams, especially Howling Wolf Pack and TNT. These two teams alone work so hard and the team members are so dedicated. I’ll miss you all so much!
The team leaders were always friendly and even took time to get to know me, which was incredible. I’d like to especially thank the leaders who took the time to show me how to do everything their team does and even take that extra time to explain the little details to me.
I’d also like to thank the ISMs Assurance team because they all welcomed me to their team even though I’m not even a part of it. They were always friendly and helped me figure out little things, like where to get a parking pass and how to use the phones.
I’d also like to thank my team leader, Mylea. She’s remarkable and made this summer worthwhile and educational. I would tell anyone that this internship will change you for the better. It will make you realize new ideas and new ways of looking at things that you never have before.
I’ll miss all the friends that I’ve made thus far. The best part of the internship was the fact that everyone else who was an intern was so welcoming and entertaining. It’s definitely a great place to meet new people.
As much as I’ll miss these things, I’ll be leaving Quicken Loans with a new set of skills and valuable tools that I’ll be able to use throughout my professional life. Furthermore, I’d say that the ISMs left a major impact on me because they made me see things in a different way. Work shouldn’t be about working harder, it should be about working smarter and finding new ways of doing things. I know that I’ll carry these with me for the rest of my life.
I’ve been so immersed in QL culture and ideas that I even compare things that aren’t up to par with the high standards that Quicken Loans adheres to. I’m constantly saying things like, “Quicken Loans does it this way and it’s so much better.” Once you become part of the family of companies, you’re forever a part of the family.
You can tell how close this company is and how close they are within their family of companies. So in closing, I’m so pleased that I chose to work at my second home, Quicken Loans, this summer. It was one of the best and most beneficial career choices that I could have made. Thanks for a great summer and I’m looking forward to the possibility of working here again next year!
