What I liked
I loved the entirety of my internship at MAXIMUS. From the beginning of the program, you could tell that MAXIMUS was very serious about this program. The interns not working at the corporate headquarters of MAXIMUS in Virginia, like myself, were flown there for orientation with the Virginia interns, which was a very cool experience itself, and then were sent back to their respective offices to begin their work.
I found the people I worked with during my internship to not only be good colleagues and mentors, but also good friends. They provided me with work that felt like it mattered and also gave plenty of feedback whenever I completed a task, something I found very helpful. I had the opportunity to work on a project with company-wide impact, something I was in awe of when initially given that task.
I was also given opportunities to work on tasks outside of my immediate team's scope of work, which allowed me to meet and work with people all throughout the MAXIMUS organization and all throughout the country. This allowed me to gain insight into the many different things that MAXIMUS does.
At the end of my internship, I was very thankful to have been offered a part-time position in a similar role at MAXIMUS, which I accepted and am currently working in.
Overall, my internship at MAXIMUS was nothing but excellent. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
