Applying her experience in the classroom
As Samantha finishes up her degree before graduating in December, she feels confident that these hands-on experiences will impact the way she learns. “I will dig deeper and figure out new ways to adapt the strategies that I’m being taught.” She also points out, “Learning in a classroom is nothing like working in a corporate role. Theory and practice don’t always align. Being a human resources intern continually teaches me to fuse those two elements together in a way that makes sense given the circumstances.” She prides herself on asking questions in order to figure out the “why.”
Even though Samantha is no longer pursuing aviation as a career, she plans to earn her pilot’s license in the future. While it may not be her full-time job, she appreciates the lessons learned from flying and all the ways she can apply those skills in a human resource role.
