Up until this summer, I had only one experience with a startup, and that was FME. Now, I am working for two startups and so far, it has been a pretty interesting experience. The contrast between working for a corporation versus working for a startup has been insanely different, but I have already learned a…

Unpaid Internships Are Worth It

I work really hard at my job. I go in early, leave late, ask everyone in my department if they need help, and if it’s a busy day, I’ll even offer to go get coffee.

The Impact of Positivity

During my internship at Ardsley I always take the initiative and dive into tasks with a positive attitude. For example, a couple of weeks ago my advisor told me to complete some research pertaining to renewable energy investment.

Teamwork as a Key to Success

Interning at WGBH Digital is a unique experience with an interesting balance between solo contributions and team collaboration. As the saying goes, “there is no ‘i’ in team.” Every piece of work completed adds to the finished product, in one way or another. This system is extremely effective in Digital due to the department’s culture.…
