Drew’s Job!!!

We are soo0000 excited to say that Drew just found out he was offered a position at Milwaukee Electric Tool as a Mechanical Engineer. AND he accepted!!! He’ll begin his position in the Rotary Hammer Department upon graduation in June of 2012.

Drew briefly interned with Vanessa’s uncle Scott, just learning the ropes and the design process at Milwaukee Tool in October 201o. He began a second internship in June 2011 in the Rotary Hammer Department. There he designed, manufactured, assembled, and tested a rotary hammer prototype. Towards the end of his internship, he was asked to stay on through the school year. In October, he began the interview process for the position, which included numerous events and four 1-hour long interviews at the end.

He is super excited, because he loves the people he gets to work with and that it continues to challenge him and that he gets to apply all he has learned to this job. As he finished out his school year, he keeps in mind how things he is learning can benefit Milwaukee Electric.

New Job for Vanessa

Sorry we have been holding out on everyone lately, we have been insanely busy the past few weeks with Christmas coming up, my sister’s wedding and getting ready for a NEW JOB! I had been applying to places like crazy for a few months now and was getting no where, and then this opportunity came out of the blue. On January 10, I will be the new graphic/web designer for the Holland Beauty E-Commerce sites, under the leadership of Jon Studer. Jon just emailed me one day to see if I could come in to talk about the position and I new right away it was the opportunity I’ve been waiting and looking for. God has perfect timing.

I will be working on the design side of the E-Commerce Sites, HollandBulbFarms.com and TulipWorld.com, as well as the future iPhone app, iMyGarden. So get ready for some new work. My internship and freelancing with Birds&Blooms of Readers Digest Association will hopefully help inside this flower world. I’ll be learning a lot of new things at this new job and am so excited to expand my knowledge. I don’t want to ever stop learning.

While I am excited to start this new amazing opportunity, I will miss my friends at VIF. It has been a good three years of learning and developing my skill, but it is time to move on to bigger and better things.
