Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies

Supply Chain Data Management Intern

May - August 2018 • Piscataway, NJ

What I liked

I loved the mentorship program that gave me someone who I could go to whenever I need help or advice.

What I wish was different

Advice

One piece of advice I would share is that the internship is what you make of it. Take risks and set up 1:1s with people you want to be connected with. Step out of your comfort zone and try a stretch project. The overall internship is short so make the most out of your time there.
