Here's what some of our past interns have to say:

Lily Jurist, 2019 ABLE Marketing Intern

“My favorite part about interning at ABLE was the culture and the fact that everyone is so committed to the mission at the core of the company. That's what makes it such a friendly environment where people care about everyone they work with. What has stuck with me most has been the skills that I developed and could apply to other companies. I learned so much and was able to gain a lot of hands-on experience. I also have loved keeping up with everything ABLE does as they grow!”

Jessica Kaplan, 2021 ABLE Marketing Intern

“Interning at ABLE has been one of the most incredible and life changing opportunities that I have experienced. Having the chance to work so closely with the smart, and creative marketing team has taught me so much about creative storytelling and branding. The culture of the company is driven by its mission to empower women, which is something I felt so strongly walking into the office every single day.”

Kira Pauley, 2018 ABLE Flagship Intern

“Since ABLE, I have continued to pursue a career in merchandising and I still think back to the ‘bigger picture’ mentality I learned while interning at ABLE. From projects and conversations with my supervisor, I learned how to maintain a global perspective of what was happening in a company and how to integrate that into my role. During my time, I could see how working together with the different departments was crucial to help the mission of ABLE come to life!”

Anna Armstrong, 2019 ABLE Flagship and Merchandising Intern

“One of my favorite times while interning at ABLE was being a part of the customer enhancement project for their flagship along with creating the RAW bar installation. I loved the trust they gave me to take on more responsibility and take charge in projects like this.”

McKenzie Cottle, 2019 ABLE Wholesale Intern

“I loved working under Mallory and other smart women, and the culture with the other interns at the time. We became great friends! I also really enjoyed working at market and planning the Retailer Day event for the retailers at ABLE’s flagship store. I appreciated being given projects that could have an effect on the company after I left, and seeing my growth from the beginning of my time there till the end, and now on into my career.”
