May 19, 2016 Say Hello to Summer Intern, Sam Taillon
My name is Samantha Taillon and I am a rising junior at St. Lawrence University. I am a member of the women’s soccer team at St. Lawrence and am studying Economics with a minor in Statistics. I am extremely excited to be interning at the Saratoga County Prosperity Partnership this summer!
I believe working within a startup atmosphere will allow me to be more involved with the day-to-day business processes than most other internships. I am especially looking forward to learning more about Saratoga County businesses and developing the economy of such a great area. I have recently relocated to Wilton, NY from Bethlehem, NY and cannot wait to begin exploring.
As an economics major I believe a strong economy is essential for an area and all the businesses within to flourish. I hope to learn economic development strategies, protocol and more about what makes an economy and business successful. I hope to learn more about what an economics major can lead to for a student after college and receive hands on experience at my time with the Partnership.
