I absolutely loved onboarding and how much attention I received throughout the onboarding process. My mentors and manager allowed me to do my work at my own pace without any pressure, which helped me become a lot more responsible and independent. I also loved that I had the opportunity to explore and learn what “real-life” work experiences are like. Throughout the entire internship and in my time at the company, I have gained not only technical and work-related knowledge, but also valuable experience in communicating and building relationships with other people.
