“Overall, it was a great experience. The internship went remote due to Covid but they went above and beyond to make sure we still got a good experience and were able to meet other interns virtually. Everyone was very willing to talk to you and answer and questions you had about absolutely anything. My project was interesting and I was able to learn a lot from my team, manager, and technical mentors.”
