GUEST CONTRIBUTER, SUNSHINE ACE HARDWARE
Sunshine Ace Hardware has had amazing success with interns, particularly those recommended by the Greater Naples Chamber. They have always been professional, smart and energetic. This year’s intern Annie Stockham was no exception.
Alex Breault at the Chamber has been a great resource for talented intern candidates. “Alex has always brought us top quality talent for our intern program. One hundred percent of the time we have been sad for our interns to return to school. They have delivered so much value to our business and become great teammates” said Scott Hamblen, Sunshine Ace Hardware’s Chief Merchandising Officer.
Annie is currently a University of Florida student who is majoring in Economics with a minor in Business Administration. She plans to graduate in December and continue her education in graduate school. “I initially thought I wanted to work in data analytics; however, Sunshine exposed me to so many different aspects of their business. I really found that I had an interest and talent in marketing which will help me with my future education and career” said Annie.
Sunshine Ace Hardware has utilized interns from the Naples Chamber in the Support Office that supports their 12 stores from Marco Island to Tampa. “The interns have helped us with data management, sales analysis, creating our company newsletter, developing in-store signs, implementing marketing campaigns and supporting our great employee engagement activities like our Team Appreciation Week event.”
“Sunshine would definitely recommend Alex and the Greater Naples Chamber as a great resource for identifying interns to support your business. Alex is a great resource to help develop the next generation of leaders in Collier County as well as infuse youthful energy into a business today. It really is a win for the intern, the business and the community,” said Scott.
