Eric Martinez

Where are you from?
    • Bridgeport, WA
  1. What school are you attending?
    • Washington State University.
  2. What is your major?
    • Business Marketing
  3. What skills do you want to gain from this experience?
    • Some things I want to gain from this internship is experience in an office setting, and a more complete knowledge of everything that occurs in the fruit industry.
  4. What are your goals after graduation?
    • My goal after graduating from WSU is to be a marketing manager for a company (possibly fruit company) in need of someone with the skills and abilities I have to offer.
  5. What extracurriculars are you involved in and why?
    • In school I was involved in intramural sports, I played 5v5 basketball, 3v3 basketball, and softball. I play those because they're fun, competitive, and enjoyable for someone like myself.
  6. What are you most passionate about learning — personally or professionally — and why?
    • Personally, I enjoy learning how to work with cars because when my brother got his first car it was not in good shape, and we would always work on his car together, trying to get it to look nicer and run better. But professionally, I strive for opportunities like this internship so I can not only better, but further my skillset, while getting ahead of my college colleagues in gaining the experience I'm going to need in the future for my chosen profession.
  7. Why do you think you might like to live in the community in which our company is located?
    • Lake Chelan. I love swimming, and being in the beautiful atmosphere Chelan has to offer. Living here in Chelan is a goal of mine I plan on achieving in the near future!
