career aspirations

"It's been fun using PM software tools like Microsoft Project and Project Portfolio Management (PPM) in real-use cases. I'm able to practice and refine a lot of fundamental soft skills that are always so important: Learning how to plan and allocate teams and work, understand and communicate priorities, and collaborate with different teams. Being a PM Intern has definitely reaffirmed my desire to lead a team and work collaboratively with multiple departments and across fields! I'm looking forward to being a software engineer that can lead teams as a manager across both the technical and business sides and make great products."

internship takeaway

“This position has given me experience navigating and understanding a system much larger and more complex than anything I have encountered in school. Having to learn the system, and my role within it, in a short period of time is something I think will prove to be valuable anytime I need to learn a new skill for future jobs.”

Meet Loren R.

internship experience

"This internship has been such a great opportunity for me to learn the best practices of accessibility as well as gain hands-on experience with industry tools and programs. For example, I've been able to learn more about the web design tool, Figma, which I otherwise would not have been prompted to dive deep into some of its very in-depth uses and features. After I graduate, I will work as a content designer/UX writer in the tech industry. In the industry, it can be very beneficial to establish a specialty within your discipline. I hope to use what I have learned in this internship to be a champion for accessibility and inclusion in design."
