All interns are given free housing, which was amazing. Also, interns in IST were given projects with actual responsibility and whose outcomes were actually very important for the team and most of which were immediately implemented. Furthermore, I had no prior knowledge of the energy industry before this internship, and learned an incredible amount in my short 10 weeks at BP.
Lots of different assessments of interns, but still enjoyable since the intern class didn't act competitive or unfriendly toward each other.
