Hi everyone and welcome to week 9 of the Corporate Trainee Blog from Lane Whitman! Currently, I’m doing my first rotation in Category Finance where I’m helping my team to develop a deeper understanding of our margin changes. It’s certainly challenging and I work with a lot data in excel everyday but it’s very rewarding to be able to provide a positive impact on the business.
My favorite part of this rotation is definitely the team. They’re all incredibly bright and know how to keep things light and fun while we work. I’m having an amazing time learning from them and I can’t wait to be able to present my final deliverables to them in 5 weeks.
Overall, the trainee program has been a great opportunity for me not only to learn but to also provide a tangible impact on the business. Everyday provides new challenges, but as I continue to learn, I find myself able meet those challenges and to deliver great results.
That’s all from me for this week. Thanks for reading!
