After completing SDR (sales development representative) training I have been calling dental practices around the country and setting up meetings for our sales “closers”. I have learned that it is extremely hard to steal 10 minutes of a doctor’s time during the summer, especially specialists like oral surgeons and endodontists. It is my job to … Continue reading Simplifeye – My responsibilities – Austin Frank

The summer is usually a slow time for The Weill Music Institute (WMI) because most of the planning time happens between June-August in preparation for the 2017-2018 season.

The BDSI program has 45 participants, but I work closely with two others on a specific project, Olivia and Alejandra. They have been extremely helpful to the project, and we cover each other’s weaknesses pretty well. We also get along very well which makes the work day really painless. Aside from other participants, I also … Continue reading Big Data Summer Institute – Making connections – Christian Rodriguez
