CARBON Group Global

Education Technology Research Intern

May - August 2020 • Memphis, TN

What I liked

I felt like I really stepped outside my comfort zone with this role and did a lot of things that I normally wouldn't have like working with graphs and data or creating and presenting decks to investors. This was just after my freshman year so I was comfortable in not knowing as much as my colleagues who were in Grad school, but I still pushed myself to learn from them as much as possible.

What I wish was different

I wish I asked for feedback during the internship to know what I could improve on during the internship and not just in the end during the mandatory feedback session with my boss. I could have taken a lot more initiative with offering my help when something wasn't necessary "my job".


Make sure you know what your boss expects from you at all times - if you're even a little unsure, clarify. Don't leave feedback for the end of the internship alone.
