Hey Lager Blogger followers! My name is Carolyn Littlefield, and I am thrilled to be a member of the 2011 GMT Program. I recently graduated from Princeton University with a Bachelor of the Arts degree in History. While at Princeton, I was a member of the Varsity Diving team for four years. I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, and I am a proud Cardinals fan. My hobbies include horseback riding, running, and spending time at our family farm and vineyard.
Hmm, where to begin about why I love being a GMT Program? For starters, the first few weeks have been filled with exciting activities like Brewing Boot Camp, a trip to Accenture in Chicago, a Home Brew project, learning how to properly pour a Stella Artois, and a Beer Tasting of over 30 brews from around the world. I must also say that the people aren’t too shabby themselves. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of intelligent, fun, interesting, and driven peers to share these experiences with me.
There are also many things that I am anxiously awaiting as a GMT. This company and our program in particular will allow me to fully understand the ins and outs of the beer industry, and how we as a global company reach hundreds of millions of consumers around the world. The idea of working with and learning about consumer markets, as well as making and distributing products that we are proud to call our own is what makes me excited to go to work every day. Additionally, this program offers a unique opportunity for training from the ground up, and it will allow each of us to become extremely well-versed in all of the intricacies of the beer-making process, and hopefully give us the knowledge and ability to effectively contribute to the future success of the company.
Besides, who wouldn’t want to work for the world’s leading beer company?!
