Intern Diaries: Ashlyn
Hey y'all! I'm Ashlyn, an intern here at The Houndstooth Press. I am a Junior at the University of Arkansas pursuing a biology degree and a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma. I have worked at Houndstooth since October of 2013, and I could not ask for a better college job! I'm from a very small town in Arkansas, but love living in Fayetteville.
One of the best things about my job is the ever present candy bowl that sits in the front room. I love the yellow starbursts (I know... I'm weird) and milky ways. Aside from the plethera of candy, I love working at Houndstooth because I am always surrounded by friends. We have a very friendly, laid-back environment here where we like to have fun while getting our jobs done.
A typical day at Houndstooth for me consists of answering customer e-mails, processing online orders, delivering orders, talking with customers in the show room, and anything else that needs to be done. All of the interns have projects that we are continually working on without being told exactly what to do. We all work very independently, but come together when needed. I think this gives us the opportunity to play to each of our strenghths.
As I have worked for The Houndstooth Press for over a year, and I feel like I know what we are striving for and what the environment is pretty well. It did not take me long to realize that I work with some of the most hardworking people I have ever met. Everyone is striving for perfection, and working hard to make our customers as happy as possible.
