Project Management Intern

May - July 2018 • Monroe, LA

What I liked

I loved the culture of the company where everyone is very supportive and open to different opinions. I also enjoyed working at CenturyLink for providing opportunities to network with other interns and professionals.

What I wish was different

I wish I could've worked with other interns on collaborative projects that would showcase our skillsets. I only got to work with people on my business unit and I think it would amplify the internship experience by broadening the interactions between interns and different business units.

Advice

WHEN YOU ARE AN INTERN, YOU CAN DO ANYTHING WITH THAT TITLE. So take an advantage of it by reaching out to people in leadership, managers, and colleagues.

What I liked

I loved the exposure I got to all parts of Human Resources and professionals at high levels of the business. I also really enjoyed the project based work I was given and the opportunity to share it with executives.

What I wish was different

I wish I could’ve had the opportunity to network a little more with the other interns across departments- since there was 70 of us total it was difficult.

Advice

I would say to push yourself to work hard, soak in as much learning as possible from the experiences you participate in and from the people you meet, and to believe in yourself along the way.
