                In the summer of 2012 David Marceau got the chance to intern at Sherwin Williams. He was a member of a team of interns and worked on a project to improve "Lead Generation." As part of his team, David had to present his research and findings to the president of sales. This was one of the most nerve racking experiences of his life but he passed the test with flying colors. After his groups presentation the president of sales commended them on their efforts. Aside from his work with a team, he also answered phones and dealt with customers.

                "It was great to learn how to be a part of a bigger team, to collaborate with others to get the job done." David got invaluable experience working with a team at Sherwin Williams. Even though this job didn't directly correlate with his eventual career goals, he still learned many new things that will aid him in the future. "Overall it was a great experience for me."

                David learned about this internship opportunity through the Center for Internships and Career Development here at Eastern. His biggest piece of advice for those looking to follow in his footsteps and obtain an internship is to be actively engaged in the workplace. "Ask questions. No question is a stupid question. Put yourself out there. Experience it all while you have the chance."
