What do past BCIT grads say about Konica Minolta?
“My time spent during my internship was a great learning experience. I was immediately emerged in the environment which I had studied and was preparing for. To be able to see first-hand the art and the science behind a successful technical sales cycle…[f]rom prospecting and opening a dialogue to building a relationship on how we can help the client and their business with Business Technologies.
The training I received at Konica Minolta during the intern was appreciated. Although I was not employed by Konica Minolta, they were willing to train, teach and invest in me to make me a better Business/Sales person. [A]s Konica Minolta was transforming, it was exciting to see how the culture and morale of the KM Team pushed into new ground.
Over all, from the internship, I’ve learned that the business environment is a constant changing landscape…[a]nd KM is constantly adapting to it with innovating ideas and product offerings for growth. I saw parallels relating to my personal growth as well. For me to grow, I need to adapt and learn for my development and KM offered that. That is why I decided to pursue a career with this organization. The direction, the people, the resources, and the culture is here for an environment of growth.”
