Path of Progress Intern Feature: Brandon Williams
How did your internship experience at Harbor prepare you for your professional career?
As an intern here at Harbor I was fortunate enough to work on the implementation of a new Warehouse Management System. Working on a project that is so impactful to the daily operations at Harbor I had the opportunity collaborate with several different departments to understand how each department and every individual at Harbor work together to achieve their goals. After school I was unsure on the direction I wanted to take my career, my time as Intern gave me the opportunity to explore my options for a career path and go in the direction that I found best for me. I have been with Harbor for 5 years now and they have been great about allowing individuals to take control of their career path and goals.
What was the most important thing you learned from your time interning?
