Intern Victoria Simokov

Hired at Lochness Medical Inc.

Victoria Simokov is a Junior at Ohio University, pursuing a BS in Communication Studies (with a focus on Organizational Communication), and a minor in Professional Sales.

Tell us a little bit about yourself outside of your internship?
I’m an outgoing, fun-loving, sorority woman who loves tacos, my college bubble (Athens, Ohio), and working out in my spare time.

What do you expect to get out of your new internship?
I’ll benefit from this experience mostly because I’m getting the experience at all–medical sales internships are extremely rare. I was expecting to get a general sales internship, not something completely tailored to my ultimate dream job!

What are you most excited for with your new internship?
I’m BEYOND stoked for my internship because for as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to be in medical sales. My parents both sales professionals, so I grew up comfortable with the transient lifestyle.

How did Internships.com help you land your internship at Lochness Medical Inc.?
Internships.com helped me so much. Literally,without it I wouldn’t have this opportunity. The website was so user-friendly; It made me really want to stand out from every other candidate on the site. I used the easily-navigable search feature to find an internship that pertained to sales,was full-time, and paid. Internships.com led me straight to the posting about Lochness Medical Inc. and I applied using the cool resume the site let me create. I got an email within a couple days that led to a Skype interview, which led to me being chosen as an intern out of nearly 400 other applicants from Internships.com! I am forever indebted to this wonderful resource and can’t recommend it enough. I think college students take tools like this for granted without realizing what kind of opportunities it can lead them to!

Thank you Victoria for sharing your success story!
