Give us a brief summary of your experience?

This summer I interned at Minitab as a Talent Acquisition Intern. In my role, I was able to gain hands on experience in recruiting, program organization, and interviewing.

How did this experience impact you academically?

My experience at Minitab this summer has impacted me academically by providing me with various opportunities to see how my class learnings are applied in the real world. For instance, I was able to pull upon my learnings from employment law to understand what questions can be asked in an interview. Minitab has provided me with an environment full of opportunities to grow my knowledge and positive team members who are always willing to answer questions.

How will this experience impact your career goals?

This experience will impact my career goals as Minitab has shown me the type of company I want to work for. I was shown what an employee focused culture looks like and found that culture is one I want to stick with. Working for a company that truly values your health and work progress has been a life changing experience.
