Kopari Beauty

Retail Account Intern

June 2019 • La Jolla, CA

What I liked

I really enjoyed working with the retail team, learning about the back end of selling products in large retailers. I tracked weekly Ulta and Sephora sales and worked closely with the freelance product educators who visit stores and sell-through. Using excel and google's platforms daily, my proficiency of creating worksheets has increased greatly.

What I wish was different

I wish that I could have negotiated a stipend to take off the stress of working additional hours elsewhere in order to supplement the 15+ hours at my internship.


Always work your hardest and treat your work like a true job! It is always best to be passionate about the company and diversify your workload as much as possible. Use your internship opportunity as time to reflect on the work and if it is something you'd want to do as a career, ask as many questions as you can and always come ready to learn!
