During the summer I began an internship with The Capital Chamber of Commerce. It was quite the experience. As an Administrative Assistant intern I received phone calls from their members, prepared company letters, documents, and performed other office duties. I also learned how to streamline an office for efficiency, create e-mail distribution lists for their members and supporters, attended meetings and participated in Capitol Chamber events within the community. Through my experience working for the Chamber I now network with a host of entrepreneurs, small businesses owners, and corporate employees.
What started out as two-week assignment training in their office as Administrative support has now become a part-time internship for me and I love every bit of it. Not only do I receive training in the classroom at Metro Tech, but on the job as well. At the Chamber, I work alongside Ms. Sharron Jackson cialis without prescription and Ms. Aprille Franks-Hunt.
Ms. Jackson is a Industrial/Business Cooridinator in the Business and Economic Development Center for Metro Technology Centers, the BIS Coach on 1140 am and is the presiding Chairman of the Board for the Capitol Chamber of Commerce.
Ms. Aprille Franks-Hunt is the Interim Executive Director for the Chamber and is also a business coach; motivational speaker; social media whiz; entrepreneur extraordinar; and author. Ms. Franks-Hunt has written a non-fictional book that will be released soon entitled, “Confessions of an Independent Woman”. Both ladies are great role models for me and I’m learning a lot about business and entrepreneurship through them. If you are thinking about starting your own business, I encourage you to seek out these two ladies on campus. Their offices and the Capital Chamber of Commerce are located inside the Economic Development Center building on Metro Tech’s Springlake campus. Be sure to check them out!

Antiganee, Yessica, Shaiyang, and I all volunteered for Metro Tech’s Career Day….and it was awesome. Our Administrative Assistant booth was in the very front, which was great because it was one of the first booths the high school students went to.
Our booth featured a brilliant activity, Speed typing. Metro Tech provided us with two lap tops. We download software that we use in class and the students that visited our booth were able to test their typing skills against their friends. They both received candy afterwards,one of the main things that attracted them to the booth, besides my coolness (lie). They loved it. There were a couple of students that really impressed me, one of them typed 94wpm (words per minute). My classmates and I were pretty lucky to come into contact with such good natured young adults.
Aside from our booth, I enjoyed visiting other setups. The Car Repair, Public Safety, and Culinary booths really stood out to me. Car Repair had a very nice car on display, you even had the option of looking under the hood. The Public Safety booth featured video-games and their police car. The Culinary booth had pretzel sticks, covered in caramel and then a coat of chocolate that they had made themselves… I was a bit sadden that I didn’t get the chance to have one.
I typed against a few adults from the other booths. One time I tied with my competitor and the rest I won! Which is pretty weird, I’ve never typed that fast in my life! I went up to 78wpm, it had to be the fact that I had competition. Everyone had a great time, and I enjoyed the experience.
