Hello! My name is Sarah Bivens, and I am wrapping up my summer as an intern at Sendero.
As a rising senior studying International Business & Supply Chain Management at Baylor University, I was searching for an internship that would give me a glimpse into the consulting industry and further my understanding of what being a consultant post-graduation would look like. After stumbling upon Sendero’s booth at my university’s career fair and meeting several Senderoans, I found that Sendero’s summer internship program offered me what I was looking for.
Each year, Sendero recruits across college campuses for a 10-week summer internship. Our summer’s intern class came from a wide range of universities and majors; from industrial distribution to French, we offered a myriad of perspectives and skills.
When I asked my fellow intern Ben Pfeffer, a Marketing Major at The University of Texas, why he was drawn to Sendero, Ben noted that he “wanted to get a feel for what consulting actually means.” Others, like Kyle Hazelbaker, an Internal Distribution major at Texas A&M University, prioritized an internship that allowed for “real client engagement” and a hands-on experience where interns could “provide value to stakeholders.” Kyle also found that “Sendero focused highly on the development of their people, more so than many other firms” and that “Sendero’s culture really stood out.”
