“The business curriculum at the college has been useful to my internship experience. Particularly, the skills I have learned from Professor Changarath in IT 330, to work efficiently in Microsoft Excel, have proved most valuable. My being able to quickly develop spreadsheets for the specialists in my department is a result of practicing these skills in the classroom.”
Apart from applying what I’ve learned in school, the work I did at Christie’s during my internship was an incredible learning opportunity. Each day at the office I gained new experience in how to perform certain tasks more efficiently, or how to accomplish something I hadn’t done before. Most interesting, and more particular to an internship with Christie’s, was the constant exposure to the art. The art pieces were incredible, and it was an excellent experience to assist the specialists and employees of Christie’s in their tasks dealing with these artifacts.
Update: Shortly after graduating, James Matson was offered and accepted a position in the Business Office at Christie’s, NYC.
