What I have enjoyed most about my internship in the MPS division is that you get to see and work with so many different departments. I had the opportunity to collaborate with so many amazing people. To see how they work and how their work impacts the overall company is an amazing experience.

The experience that I have gained through my internship was extraordinary. I was given the opportunity to grow both as an individual and an employee while working here. I was handed responsibilities that helped me learn from both my mistakes and successes, and also a support network that allowed me to get help when it was needed. It is obvious that people want you to thrive, learn and succeed here, which is why I think it is such an amazing place for young students. To be able to be involved in such a positive work environment is an honor and I am extremely excited to see what the next few months have in store for me.

My internship has been an excellent opportunity to build experience within my area of study. Here, you are given the tools and appropriate guidance to construct the foundations of your career. Fellow colleagues are very open, knowledgeable and always willing to help. The fact that everyone treats you like an actual employee, instead of an intern, makes it an even more rewarding experience.
