Former Tech Student Intern at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

over 2 years ago
As an summer intern at PNNL (through NSIP, National Security Internship Program), I had one main mentor, and worked directly with several other scientists as project-specific mentors. My mentors provided guidance on research tasks and were available for any questions I had (in person, email, phone, etc.). They helped to determine the ways in which I could contribute to their ongoing projects, in the 9 short weeks that I spent at the lab, and thus were crucial to my time there. Having a good mentor can truly make the the internship experience--mine did! They taught me many things technically, connected me with other scientists at the lab to learn about other research areas, and also connected me with other interns through social events.

Former Undergraduate Research Associate at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

I am not sure if they have a specific mentorship program. My experience might have been unique, but I worked at PNNL as undergraduate for 2-3 months over the summer. I was put on a research project and paired with a post-doctoral fellow in the lab. I think having the daily interaction with the post-doc certainly helped me accomplish my research goals, but I was also able to expand my network at the same time.

I'm not 100% sure about this. I would say you would get a mentor for projects if you are an intern, senior design student at Washington State University, or a post doctoral student. I would say, to be successful at the company, network, show up, and meet deadlines.
