Business & Marketing Intern

June - August 2019 • Marlborough, MA

What I liked

I enjoyed the real-life experience this internship gave me, and the fact that I worked with real professionals. Everyone there was very welcoming and kind, and I feel as though I learned a lot about the operations of such a large company.

What I wish was different

There were no other interns at my location, as most of them were in New Jersey at the main business headquarters so I missed out on some intern events that were held in New Jersey. That was really the only downside of the internship - I greatly enjoyed the experience

Advice

Take it seriously and ask a lot of questions. That is the best way to learn things, and even if the industry seems daunting, I promise you will learn as you go.

Phlebotomist

May - December 2019 • Denver, CO

What I liked

More experience to practice blood draws. Got to learn about many of the different tests and how they are tested. Working with people of all walks of life.

What I wish was different

Got to work more with coworkers. Got to learn even more about the tests and how tests are performed on blood, urine, and stool. Next year I would like to work with the microbiology division and learn or perform tests.

Advice

Find ways to stay busy on slow days and don’t stress on busy days.

mechanic assistant

June - August 2019 • Mobile, AL

What I liked

The hands on experience working on engines were amazing. The people were so patient and kind. They treated me like family. The customers were extremely friendly.

What I wish was different

I wish it was paid position. The experience was great, but it didn’t help me pay bills.

Advice

Definitely find a paid position if you can. I also learned summer classes are so much harder with a job. Summer classes move fast and cover a lot of materials in a short time. Don’t wait until the last minute to get help. If you don’t understand a concept, go see your professor as soon as you can.

Temporary Administrative Assistant

May - August 2019 • Pittsburgh, PA

What I liked

I loved seeing a different side of medicine. When one gets a sample taken, it gets sent off to labs like Quest for diagnostic testing and most people never give it a second thought. Everyone I worked with was super interested in educating me about their department, field and experience.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have continued part time through the school year!

Advice

Don't be afraid to reach out and ask people you know in your field for advice or anything!

Lab associate

August 2019 • San Juan Capistrano, CA

What I liked

I like that it’s a full time, real job where I can learn about Molecular Genetica to prepare for my future goals.

What I wish was different

I wish it would have pertained more directly to the job that I one day hope to have, but it is still a foot in the door.

Advice

Take the risk. I moved across the country for my job and it’s one of the best experiences I’ve ever had.

Client Service Representative

What I liked

I liked how I got experience in a professional setting and got to work with very accomplished people.

What I wish was different

I wish the training was shorter.

Advice

If you have your evenings off, this job is perfect for you. They paid a very good amount of my school tuition and I recommend anyone who wants real life experience and tuition paid to work here.
