My name is Robinson Martin, I am a third year student at UBC Okanagan pursuing a degree in business management. I am a senior operator with Scholars Edge, and this will be my second year running a business.
I was hired late last season, and I was immediately overwhelmed and excited by the responsibilities and opportunities to come throughout the summer. Once I got my business running and got in the groove of production, marketing and the overall management of my business, I felt I was in my element. I have never had a more rewarding job, mostly because all of the benefits are directly proportionate to the effort you put in. For me, there is no better feeling than being able to look at what I accomplished over the summer and knowing I am the only one that made it happen. I love being a problem solver, and I would say that is one of the biggest components of the job. My experience with Scholars edge has allowed me to vastly improve many essential entrepreneurial skills such as interpersonal skills, time management, resilience, work ethic, and efficiency. I look forward to further improving these skills, learning new ones, making good money, and further improving my resume throughout the summer!
