Student Intern Spotlight: Eva Savovich on working at Abercrombie

By Meg Matthias

This week, we’re spotlighting Eva Savovich, a Marketing major and Supply Chain minor from Gurnee, IL. This summer, Eva worked as a Business Analyst Intern on Hollister Girls’ Pants at Abercrombie’s corporate office in New Albany, Ohio. Today, she talks about her favorite parts of Abercrombie, using her co-major in Fashion Corporate Business, and how to turn an internship into a full-time job. 

At the Center for Career Exploration and Success, we are excited to have Abercrombie as a Career Partner. Our Career Partners support innovative career development programming that exposes Miami students to the world of work and prepares them for meaningful careers.

What were your favorite parts about working at Abercrombie?

My favorite part of their office was how outdoorsy it felt. The office is secluded in the middle of the woods and every morning when I walked in there was always a huge bonfire going in the middle of the campus. We would frequently have meetings outside at picnic tables and I also loved that there were Razor scooters for us to ride to and from buildings. 

My favorite part of work is being able to work cross functionally with many different roles (Merchandising, Supply Chain, Design, Finance, etc.) This allowed me to develop my teamwork building capabilities in a larger work setting. In addition, I enjoyed being able to plan how much and where to send inventory for the Back to School season because the process and method is very different than other seasons. 

What advice do you have for turning an internship into a full-time position?

The best piece of advice I have is to always go above and beyond your role/job title. Whenever I would finish a task I would always ask what else I could do to help instead of waiting to be told what to do next. This shows that you are willing to take the initiative and be proactive!
