IBM Intern 2016
“My internship experience with IBM has been one of incomparable value. It has provided exposure to a wide variety of roles, as well as education in fascinating areas that were previously unknown to me. I've been entrusted with responsibilities that stretched my abilities, and challenged me to step outside of what I know, and into what I can achieve. My mentor provided extensive guidance, on both the tasks at hand and my career aspirations. While my intern colleagues gave me encouragement and perspective of the opportunities available in the world. I can say without hesitation, that it has been a remarkable opportunity and crucial stepping stone towards further success within IBM.”
