The best aspects of this internship is that I get to see what P&G is like from the inside. To know that the people really do care about the products they make, and the innovations they try to achieve in the marketplace. I also enjoy that as a designer I get to manage projects, which you don't get the opportunity to do very often this early in your career.
Probably the fact that I'm in a cubicle. I come very a pretty fast paced open environment, so this is a bit different.
Advice to Potential Interns
They take less than 1% of applicants, but don't let that stop you from applying. What's the worst thing that happens they say no, and your left in the same spot you were before you applied. This doesn't mean you're not qualified for your degree or education, it just means they didn't think you were qualified for the position they had. Keep your head up.
Advice to Management
If you're just wanting to design all day, pick a different internship. If you want to design, manage, and lead projects this may be the job for you. Just don't expect anyone to hold your hand through it all. Yes, people will be there to guide, help, and offer resources but you are on your own for the most part. It's the real world kid. Buckle up.
