An Interview with Ridge Smith, Intern at Hereva

Q: What made you choose Hereva for your internship?

A: I chose Hereva for its brand. To me a brand is more important than revenue. It is about excellence of delivery and the people who I will be working with.

Q: Why did you choose Project Management for your first Internship?

A: In life we make choices that reflect our interests and those interests often define the success of our endeavors. The choices set you up for the journey and even if the path takes a different turn from the one you embarked on, they are all steps leading to the realization of one’s goals.

Q: What has been your biggest challenge?

A: Doing an internship during a pandemic is a struggle for everyone. Many of my peers have lost their internships and I am grateful to Hereva for giving me the opportunity to fulfill this important experience. When I first talked to our CEO, Pat Gallagher – I told him, “I want to be groomed in the way Hereva delivers their projects.”  My expectations were set high from that first conversation.

Q: What do you think you bring to Hereva? And what are your goals for the future?

A: I will bring to the table the skills and extra knowledge that I collected over the years. My goals at Hereva are as simple as they sound: to listen, to deliver and to network.
