Internship at Tahitian Noni International

Since the semester ended on April 10th, I have moved down to Utah for the Summer. I started an internship at Tahitian Noni International, creator of the Tahitian Noni Juice, a powerful beverage with high amounts of antioxidants and a great deal of goodness.

I started the internship this last Monday and I am going to be helping them with product positioning and some changes in company material. I am very excited about this internship.

On Monday I received some general training, where I was able to watch some videos about how the company started, got familiar with the building I am going to be working at, and also went on a tour to the American Fork production plant. It was very interesting to watch the process of making the juice and getting it ready to be delivered to customers.

On Tuesday I started at the actual office and just more acquainted with the culture of the company. I was able to watch 3 additional videos with testimonials from IPC's (Independent Product Consultants), with the Company founders and some Marketing related aspects. It was very nice and eye-opening to me to have access to that information. I also asked my supervisor to review the Employee Manual since it has some misspellings and also some visual aspects that need to be improved. He agreed to let me review the manual and that's what I did on Wednesday during my time at the office.

Today I received the company style guide and how they want to portray the image of the company to a company level, a product level, a distributor level, and a results level. It was interesting to notice the different color schemes that are used for each different area. They also use different pictures and different logos, as well as small graphic elements that have an incredible impact on the material produced. Today has been the best day so far. I also kept working on the Employee Manual. I still have a long way to go but I am excited about the possible outcomes. I also got acquainted with the personal care line that TNI carries. Some changes are going to be made to the product profiles and I am going to contribute to that project.

I am still not sure what is going to happen tomorrow but I am for sure looking forward to it.
