Tell us about yourself: Hi, my name is Erik Hood and I am an upcoming senior at Virginia Tech majoring in business and IT while minoring in international business. This summer, I am the operations / IT intern for Woodsboro Bank. Last year, I studied abroad in Prague and the Czech Republic at the School of Economics and learned a lot of things that will help me during my time at Woodsboro Bank. With this internship, I would like to enhance my abilities in technology and learn the fundamentals of banking.

Favorite hobbies: I enjoy fishing, listening to music, and going to the gym in my free time.

Plans for the future: I would like to have my own consulting firm where I would specialize in operations by helping small businesses optimize their logistics.
