Data Analyst Intern

June 2022 - September 2022 Waltham, MA
“Going into this summer internship, I was a bit apprehensive about working a "9 to 5 desk-job," since I envisioned it would entail long, tiresome hours of repetitive tasks in one room. However, I was amazed at how this internship surpassed all my expectations. I entered this summer being uncertain about my future aspirations and direction post graduation, however, this experience helped me clarify and determine the avenues and niches that I want to pursue post graduation. Here are some of the things I enjoyed best about the job: 1. The emphasis placed on my personal experience and growth in conjunction to my contribution to the team and company: I was so positively surprised to see the amount of value that the team and the company placed on ensuring that my experience was truly beneficial for me and my future aspirations. I would have regular check-ins with my manager who would ask me what kind of tasks/skills I would like to pursue and constantly assess my progress and tailor my journey to my expectations whilst staying in line with what the company required. 2. The variegation of tasks provided to stimulate my interest: I was never bored. I always had different tasks and datasets that I was working with that constantly stimulated my interested and taught me so many different skills. I was working with things like Google Analytics, R and post hoc analysis, different consumer and marketing data and attending several different meetings ranging from Legal CCC meetings to Non Personal Promotion (NPP) marketing meetings. 3. Intern-Led Research Project: The two interns were given agency of one specific intern-led project in an area of interest to Alkermes. It was a great responsibility and learning opportunity. 4. The collaborative, easygoing and friendly team environment 5. Networking Opportunity: We were constantly encouraged to meet up with people from different sectors in the company and talk to them about their experience. I had the opportunity to talk with people from the Sales team, the Lab team, the Market research team and so much more.”
