"I feel that I am challenged every day and am constantly learning something new..."

At Franklin and Marshall College, I dual majored in Business and Chemistry. While I was indecisive about my future career plans, the internship program at Clark Associates provided me a great opportunity to use my talents and contribute to an extremely successful company. I enjoyed the internship experience so much that I chose to pursue a position at Clark after graduation!

I am now a Procurement Analyst on the Office Products Team and really enjoy the pace of work due to our constant growth. I feel that I am challenged every day and am constantly learning something new. I love all the perks we get as employees – it’s great to be a part of a comfortable office environment and community! I am genuinely excited to go into work every day to accomplish our goals while also developing confidence in myself and my abilities!

"Working at Clark has consistently allowed me to develop as a leader and learn about all of the different aspects of our business. "

I graduated from F&M in 2017 with a double major in Chemistry and Economics and I wanted to find a job where I could both challenge the analytic skills I had developed in college and be challenged to develop skills that I didn’t yet have. I found out about Clark Associates from a friend who worked here and it was an opportunity that immediately caught my attention. In the buyer role I was immediately given responsibility and started managing vendors, negotiating contracts, and coordinating marketing. Managing the entire life cycle of my products is something very unique to Clark that has challenged me on a daily basis.

Since then I’ve had the opportunity to develop my own procurement team and grow my responsibility. Working at Clark has consistently allowed me to develop as a leader and learn about all of the different aspects of our business. Having all of these challenges and development occur within the first year is something I feel is rare, making this an opportunity I am very happy I took.

"I am happy to have found a company that will invest in me and that I can grow alongside with."

I started in the Procurement department shortly after graduating from F&M in 2017. I was quickly promoted to my current role as a Buyer for our Storage and Transport category. In this position I am able to oversee a product during every stage of its life cycle, from sourcing the product to determining a stocking strategy, planning marketing, and setting the sales price.

What ultimately drew me to Clark was the incredible growth potential and entrepreneurial spirit of the company. I absolutely love that after a little over a year I was given control over my own product lines and my team, able to make day-to-day decisions by myself. Speaking with friends that took jobs at similar e-commerce companies, this level of independence is very hard to come by. I am happy to have found a company that will invest in me and that I can grow alongside with.

"Ideas are always considered, and innovation is encouraged..."

I didn’t know what I wanted to do with the summer after my junior year, but I knew I wanted to spend it in Lancaster. I stumbled upon Clark Associates and haphazardly threw my hat in the ring. An internship and a couple interviews later, and I was well on my way to starting my career with Clark.

I love the openness and flexibility that Clark embraces. Ideas are always considered, and innovation is encouraged. This allows for new initiatives to spring up all over the company. This can be pretty rare in the professional world; many companies have webs of red tape that prevent great ideas from being heard. If you want to have the agency to enact direct and meaningful changes, Clark is the place to be.
