The remote work and approachable culture allowed for a flexible schedule where I could fit in my work around my existing schedule. Getting in contact with and communicating with managers was easy and helpful. The work itself changed from project to project meaning that I was able to use and develop different skills. The people at the organization were great.
What I wish was different
While some parts of the remote work were nice it also would have been nice to be in person. Due to the nature of the projects we were doing, some projects felt more rewarding and productive than others.
My advice might not apply due to my experience being from a COVID summer, but I would say that getting to know and collaborating with the other interns regardless of being remote was very important.
