The people are very nice and open to helping new hires all the time. I have gotten great advice from my mentor and upper management on how to deal with difficult situations in my job. I am given the responsibilities of an engineer and not a data entry job.

What I wish was different

I wish i was in the office, I don't like remote work as much as I thought I would

Advice

Be willing to ask questions and don't worry about looking dumb or inexperienced, the current employees know you are new

What I liked

I enjoyed being able to apply what I learned at IUP to this internship experience. I also enjoyed the opportunity for professional growth and development, as well as the networking opportunities.

What I wish was different

I wish it was longer. I wasn’t ready to leave when the summer came to an end.

Do not be afraid to put yourself out there. Although I was much younger than many of my peers at the site, I had a lot to bring to the table. They taught me a lot, but I taught them a lot as well.
