What I liked

Really amazing people to work with. Very flexible. Had amazing career development sessions.

I wish I could have written more.

Design Squad Global Intern

May - August 2019 • Boston, MA

What I liked

I loved being able to take lead on projects and be involved in many different projects within the department (even if they weren't directly related to my specific group I was working with).

What I wish was different

I wish it was full time.

Advice

Speak up for yourself. If you want to be put on a project or have an interest in something going on, if you speak up and show interest there is a chance you will be able to be put on that project or sit in on a meeting or two.

Lifestyles Production Intern

May - August 2017 • Boston, MA

What I liked

I loved how busy my days were while interning. I felt like my work was making a impact, and I got to learn from very talented and influential leaders in the industry.

What I wish was different

I wish there was more of a chance to sit in on meetings. I also wish we had a chance to present something to show what we had learned.

Advice

Go out of your way to meet as many people at the company as possible. People are very willing to grab coffee and chat with interns.
