Quality Assurance Intern

May - August 2020 • Bedford, MA

There was a lot of educational resources about the company, their products, and their impact. I was invited to attend a variety of meetings that included different departments so that I could get an understand of how the Quality Assurance department fit into the larger scheme of the company.

I was a remote intern and did not often have enough work to fill my day. I was often stressed about not contributing to the team enough, though there was not much more work available for me.

Human Resources Intern

May - August 2018 • Orangeburg, NY

What I liked

I loved the variety of work that I always got. There was always something new to do every day. It was more than just administrative work. I was in charge of the entire internship program. I made so many new close friends and I learned so much about full cycle recruiting which I hope to do once I graduate. I loved going to work everyday because I always had something new to look forward to.

What I wish was different

I don't really have anything that I would have done differently. Everything about my internship was so educational, interactive, and enjoyable!

Advice

One thing that I would advise future interns to do is to make sure you stay open minded. The experience is what you make of it. If you are going to be active and going above and beyond what you are assigned with, you will have a blast! You can make it as fun or boring as you like. Be open to new relationships and connections. Earn the praise from your higher ups!

Acute Care Diagnostic Intern

May - August 2018 • Bedford, MA

What I liked

The internship was very hands-on. I had real responsibilities that the company expected me to complete. It felt like I was a part of a team instead of an outsider only there for a few months.

Mechanical Engineering Intern

May - August 2017 • Bedford, MA

What I liked

Very supportive, collaborative, and motivating environment. Everyone genuinely was interested in helping out the interns and getting them involved with projects. Collaborated both with other interns and full time staff. Encouraged to try out all ideas, use with 3D printing, machining, instron, and other equipment and technology. Given much freedom with projects.

What I wish was different

Sometimes the incoming project work was slow if they were waiting on documentation, etc., but you could always find something to do.

Advice

If you're interested in any project someone is working on and want to learn more, don't hesitate to ask - people will willingly explain to your their project and you may be able to help out with it as will. This internship is what you make of it, find something you're interested in there and try to work on it.
