Interns Gain Real-World Experience Thanks to Sirius Plumbing and Air Conditioning
Sirius Plumbing and Air Conditioning hires a small group of interns each summer and pays them while they gain real world work experience.
While most intern jobs don’t pay, Sirius feels it’s only right to pay their interns—as they work and learn the business--to help them to pay for and finish their college educations, and possibly return as full time employees.
This summer Sirius has three interns working in three different areas of the company. Next week they are finishing up their internships before they go back to college. Each has a different area of responsibility.
Kendall Bailey Garrett has been working in Marketing and Design. She’s been shadowing Vicky Gouge, Sirius’s marketing manager, this summer. Gouge is teaching her different marketing strategies, as well as graphic design and social media marketing.
Kendall is from Plano and attended Prince of Peace Christian School where she played high school Lacrosse, ran Track & Field, was a Cheerleader and found time to be the History Club Co-Founder. In her senior year she was a Senior Class Officer and Powder Puff Football Chairman.
She plays Lacrosse at Mercer University, a Division 1 school in Macon, Georgia, where she is a Marketing Major with a Graphic Design Minor. Mercer University is the oldest private university in Georgia, and the current Governor of Georgia, Nathan Deal, is a graduate, as is television host and news commentator Nancy Grace.
Kendall will graduate in the spring of 2019 and her next step is a big one: she plans to apply for the Rhodes Scholarship to earn an MBA from Oxford.
Although her life seems pretty full right now, she admits to one little oddity: “I never eat the last corner of a sandwich,” she admits with a laugh.
Sirius Plumbing and Air Conditioning is proud to employ such a well-rounded intern—even if she doesn’t finish the last corner of a sandwich.
