Data Analyst Intern

May 2019 - July 2019 Laurel, MD
“I loved the atmosphere of the Lab. At JHUAPL, you are continuously surrounded by brilliant, teamwork-oriented minds who want to help you succeed and do amazing work. Even better, I gained a lot of valuable data analysis skills that will help me further my career, such as working in UNIX/Linux environments and analyzing real data with MATLAB and Python. I'm very grateful to JHUAPL for giving me the opportunity to work with them this past summer and in the future.”

College Intern

June 2019 - August 2019 Laurel, MD
“I loved the collaborative work environment. APL is not cutthroat like the majority of private sector employers. Instead, APL is a great balance between working for a government agency and working for a private company. Additionally, the variability in opportunities is amazing; APL has everything from missile systems, to cyber, to bio-technology.”
