FORZA Friday – Meet & Greet (conclusion)

by Jon Souders 0 Comments

MWA Intelligence, Inc. (MWAi) is a master value-added reseller (MVAR) and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for SAP Business One and leader in enterprise resource planning software (ERP). In layman’s terms, we are a really extremely qualified company that sells software to make other businesses run more efficiently and effective. But we are so much more than just another company and it’s a true testament to our community in the MWAi FORZA family. Our success is a result of providing a friendly atmosphere that encourages imagination, initiation, and innovation. What better way to find out first hand than from our seven new interns we hired for the summer!

In the lyrical words of Frank Sinatra, “And now, the end is near, and so I face the final curtain.” Alas, our time here at MWA is quickly coming to a conclusion as interns. On a side note, writing about oneself is really weird, just saying.

After extensive travel outside of my native county, I have fully grown accustom to answering the forever inevitable question, “Are you Amish?” I find it humorous when I see the disappointment on some strangers’ faces when I have to answer truthfully with, “no.” Definitely the more formal response than the, “Do I look Amish?” retort that sometimes slips out. In a couple of weeks, I will be returning hopefully, as a much more mature and wiser senior at Saint Vincent College where I major in Marketing with a minor in Communication.

Spoken like a true German, if my last meal consisted of just pork and sauerkraut with, maybe, a side of mashed potatoes, then you won’t hear any complaints. After playing lacrosse for 12 years, I have embraced the laid back lifestyle inhibited on the golf course, unless it’s just one of those days on the links which you all know what I’m talking about (throwing the putter in the pond). Similarly, with the rest of my generation, I’ve developed my binge-watching abilities thanks to Netflix® and Google’s Chromecast® with House of Cards and Game of Thrones. Like those before me, I do not take kindly to spiders, snakes and on a personal level, red beets are just something that no one should consume.

Growing up, my future endeavors depended on the day of the week. After finding my niche in a high school marketing class, I knew that I wanted to be the next “Don Draper” and create ads or sell products and ideas. Now that I have been exposed to a real world sales and marketing environment, there’s no turning back. During my time at MWAi, I work in the marketing department under the enlightenment of Jenna Stramaglio, Chief Marketing Officer.
