What I liked
My internship at C.H Robinson has been nothing short of INCREDIBLE! First, the team that I work alongside on a daily basis is the absolute best. They all support what I am doing and want the best for my learning throughout my internship. I never felt alone when I was doing something I may not have known how to do, and they never held that against me. Speaking of the people, the leaders I got to work under were also exceptional in that they were always willing to help me and were constantly checking in to see where they could support me in what I am doing on a day-to-day basis, they also helped me learn so much about the area of my internship, which in my case was Talent Acquisition. Furthermore, I loved the projects that I was given for this summer. The work that I was doing was challenging, meaningful, and FUN all at the same time. I feel like I truly got to do what professionals in my potential field of work get to do on a daily basis, which is super helpful as I look toward my future career. I also really enjoyed the emphasis that was put on not only learning about what I do on a day-to-day basis when I first started my internship but also learning more about the overall business operations of CHR, especially as someone who was not working directly within what the bread and butter of the business is. Another thing I loved about the internship experience was the networking calls that were set up for interns on a weekly basis with business leaders, as I gained so much valuable insight from these awesome leaders. I also felt so valued every day by my peers, and I definitely was welcomed as part of the C.H Robinson family almost instantly. I have nothing but incredible things to say about my internship experience so far. I came in with a very high bar of expectations for this internship and I am happy to say that this internship has truly exceeded that!
