Firmenich, Inc.

Flavors Creation Intern

June - August 2019 • Plainsboro Township, NJ

What I liked

I liked how I was able to network with a lot of people in the field that I hope to one day be in. Everyone was willing to teach me new things and show me how they work as a team to get projects completed. I saw the Creation team from many different angles, since they always had me moving around working on different things each day.

What I wish was different

Overall, I was very happy with my time spent at Firmenich. If I were to change one thing about my experience, I would have liked to be given a mock project to complete and be guided and taught on how they take on a project and the steps they do until its completion.

Advice

With any internship, I think it is very important to create as many relationships as you can with anyone working in the company. I was always very friendly to everyone I saw and shared experiences with school and in my lives. I found that this made employees put more trust in me, and be more willing to show me new things and tell me more about projects they are working on.
