Learning about the organization and how it's structured. Challenging yet feasible work assignments and projects. Collaborating with other employees and availability of key figures/stakeholders. Intern Events!!!
The process used to extend full time job offers at the end of the internship was very awkward and confusing.
Advice to Potential Interns
Attend all the intern events, network with anyone and everyone - inside and outside your area, be honest about your capabilities/interests/skills, meet with your supervisor/advisors often and discuss your career plan.
Advice to Management
Streamline the full time position interviewing process and re-think the way in which you extend full time offers to the interns.
