Raining Rose

Quality Control Intern

June - September 2020 • Cedar Rapids, IA

What I liked

The culture and atmosphere of Raining Rose is so positive and welcoming. You can walk down a hallway and people will stop and say hi to you(even when they don’t know you)! Raining Rose has formally started an internship program so we had weekly meetings(mostly on Microsoft Teams because of Covid-19) for professional development. Each week we would learn a new skill important for our future careers. The last week, the HR team reviewed out resumes and gave advice of what companies are looking for. I also enjoyed that I was able to do the normal duties of department while also shadowing other departments to see what they do. This allowed me to see what potential careers I may like to do without having to do anything internship. Overall it was a GREAT experience.

What I wish was different

With covid-19, most of our meetings and meet-in-greets with the executive team were virtual. It would have been awesome to meet these people in person and gain personal experience but it just wasn’t possible during my internship.


Don’t be afraid to take an opportunity because you don’t know if you are prepared for it. When you get hired, they will teach you the things they want you to do/know. Just be willing to learn and everything will work out!
