Meet Skylight Intern John Watson


John Watson

College: John Carroll University

From: Painsville, Ohio

Why did you want to intern at Skylight?

My experiences with the recruiters were a cut above the rest. Great people and a great environment at Skylight.

Tell us something you are really good at?

Translating the skills and mind-set I developed in athletics to my work.    

A fun fact about you:

I travelled to Italy to play against a semi-pro football team in the city of Pesaro.

Your favourite place to hang out in Cleveland or Columbus:

Going to downtown Cleveland to any Indians, Cavs or Browns game.     

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Back home, one of my favourite things to do is go hunting and fishing.

What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve ever done?

I went on a random, unplanned road trip down south last spring with three of my friends. We ended up stopping in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.  

Who would you most like to meet – alive or dead?

I would want to meet Lou Gehrig and pick his brain about what he thinks are the most important focuses in life.

Where do you want to be 10 years from now?

I want to be on my path as a financial advisor.  Also hopefully to have started a family.
