Yes, we had to find our own work from team members to fill our day and often had to work to deadlines. We had to arrange our own meetings with team members. We also had to complete a group intern project where we had to conduct interviews with the company given, arrange our own group meetings and complete our project with a presentation.
A lot. We were assigned a buddy who we could ask all our questions to. We also had a career coach who could guide us on how to meet =the team members and reach out for work on our behalf. We also were assigned intern groups where we could help each other more informally.
Excellent. The culture seems friendly and supportive. The atmosphere was positive.
Very much enjoyed the experience. I now look forward to joining the workforce in the future and all the intellectual and social stimulation it will bring. I had an invaluable experience learning how to work online effectively.
