It gave me an opportunity to grow, learn, see what the field was like, create friendships, foster relationships with other departments. It really opened my eyes and gave me a lot of responsibility, autonomy, and I learned so much.
What I wish was different
I wish I came in with more knowledge so I could have done more. I did not start out strong with the programs and I was very new to the softwares. Afterwards, however, it was much more efficient for me and the company!
Never be afraid to ask questions! It is always better to ask than assume you know. Internships are there for people to learn and be able to grow and test the waters out!! Be brave and ask questions, try new things, look for a strong mentor and be reliable!
