Talent Acquisition Intern | University of Nevada, Las Vegas  

What skills are you developing through your internship? What excites you about working at Acuity Brands?   

Throughout the past six weeks of my internship, I have developed stronger problem-solving, networking, and critical thinking skills.  At Acuity Brands there is never a day I do not learn something new. From learning more about the industry to learning more about talent and organizational effectiveness, Acuity Brands offers me tremendous learning and growth opportunities. I enjoy working for a company who truly values their associates. Since Day 1 of my internship, I have felt accepted, appreciated, and valued. 

 

Any hobbies, interests, or passions you’d like to share? 

I enjoy being outdoors – I love to hike and recently started outdoor rock climbing.  

 

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?   

 If I could travel anywhere in the world, I would travel to Spain! 


 

Jared Witz 

Pricing Intern | Georgia Tech 

What skills are you developing through your internship? What excites you about working at Acuity Brands?   

I am hoping to develop my analysis and critical thinking skills throughout my internship. I think that being able to hone these skills will help me bridge the gap between what I learn in the classroom and the real world. I am excited to put these skills to the test and really get comfortable approaching any problem that is in front of me. Working at a company that clearly values its team members really excites me. Ever since my first day I have loved learning about the company culture and seeing how what I do actually helps everyone move forward. 

 

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?   

If I could travel anywhere in the world I would go to Antarctica. I have always been fascinated by it and its surrounding wildlife, it is definitely on my bucket list.

I am hoping to meet a lot of people here and gain knowledge by sharing conversations with them. I love the kind of work I do at Acuity, there is flexibility for me to be creative and voice out my thoughts. I feel enthusiastic as I start to discover a lot of things when I am working. 

 

Any hobbies, interests, or passions you’d like to share?
