My teammates and supervisors are some of the best people that I've met. Everyone at the office is invested in my learning and improving my professional experience. I've been exposed to a wide variety of concepts and topics that are NOT taught in a classroom setting. The impacts that teamwork, communication, data quality, and project management have in the work that I carry out on a day-to-day basis are difficult to comprehend from class alone; my internship with Navarro has greatly broadened my perspective and thinking.
What I wish was different
I was fortunate enough to accompany a field team once this summer, however, I wish that I could've gone out more often! The field provides new and unique challenges at each and every site. I would've liked to become more familiar with the cutting-edge technology and equipment that our field teams utilize.
Attitude and work ethic make all the difference when confronted with difficult tasks/assignments. This experience has made me think about the future value of my work more-so than before; completing a task/project with thoroughness and accuracy now will pay great dividends for someone further down the line.
