Product Marketing Intern

May 2018 • San Diego, CA

What I liked

The product saves lives, the team invests in me, and everyone just wanted me to get as much out of the experience as I could! The team was friendly, gave me diverse projects, and treated me with respect. I loved being part of a team that valued me and my education and wanted to teach me so much that I could never have learned in a classroom.

What I wish was different

I wish the commute was shorter and that it was a more fast-paced industry, but overall it was awesome!

Advice

I never thought that I would want to work for a big company up until now. I recommend getting diverse experiences so you have a lot under your belt before choosing the direction you want to go in. I would also say to interview the employees you work for and learn what they did and what they do. You'll never know the kind of advice and conversation that will stem out of that!
