Some of the best aspects were the networking, flexibility, vareity, and the opportunities.
During onboarding, the instructions on how to use the systems were very vague. I thought they could have done a better job seperating the CMIs from the CSDs because not every process and system applied to both groups. Often times, CMIs were left confused and on their own.
Advice to Potential Interns

Advice to Management
Firstly, the intern handbook wasn't really helpful for CMIs. A lot of that information did not apply to us.During onboarding, I think it would be helpful to specifiy when something applies to just CSD interns. Most of the time, us CMIs were confused because we weren't sure what applied to us and what didn't. I would suggest a seperate onboarding session for CMIs. The little session we did have was not enough time. We had a lot of questions and a lot of information to cover that we just breezed through because of time.
Also, for National Intern Training- It would have been much better for all of the interns to arrive the night before. The Chicago interns were late because of a weather delay; that would have been prevented if we could have left the night before.
