Sasser Restoration is providing opportunities for students to learn about the restoration business and gain experience in the field. Throughout the fall semester, Parker Makowski, a senior at Waynesburg University in Pennsylvania, served as an intern in the finance department.

Makowski assisted with various finance-related projects, some including the budget and data visualization. He is Sasser Restoration’s first finance intern. 

Makowski describes his experience as “something he would do over again” and that he “wants someone else to experience what he felt” through this internship. 

“Parker has been a welcomed addition to the Sasser finance team and has been influential in bringing his technical skills to his internship role this fall. In a short amount of time, he has already created PowerBI tools which I believe will help the organization become more competitive and proactive in the future,” said Wes Hershelman, director of finance at Sasser Restoration. “My goal is to one day offer a management rotational program at Sasser for young business professionals right out of college. Creating an internship program would be the first step in the process. 

“I am thankful that Parker has been willing to help pave the way for others in the future.”
