What our Interns Say
“I created a framework for the management operating system board by analyzing data from web-based software representing margin & profitability to keep track of metrics and measure success within the procurement organization. I standardized the volume and price forecasting template in Excel by evaluating current processes and soliciting feedback from subject matter experts to yield efficiency and consistency. I researched and organized a category profile for dairy ingredients to assist the procurement team in evaluating current sourcing and risk mitigation strategies through dual sourcing. I also updated the supplier capabilities database through supplier outreach and created ways to improve ease of use. Finally, I utilized Lean Six Sigma principles to recommend processes for improved and sustainable documentation management.”
“The access interns have to upper management from Division Vice Presidents to Corporate Officers and even to the CFO and CEO is incredible. Also, the assignments are all meaningful and have a direct impact on the day-to-day operations of the company. The projects given to each intern provide them the ability to shine by going above and beyond what they are asked to do for a specific project. Also, if eligible, the ability to receive paid housing is a huge perk. The hourly pay is good as well. The best part of the internship is Intern Week. It is an incredible week, from networking events and development trainings to volunteer opportunities and intern events. The whole agenda is put together extremely well and it is the best week of the summer for every Abbott intern.”
“The program really puts an emphasis on intern development, which is great because it allows the interns to grow as well as work. It also provides a lot of opportunities for interns to network and talk to other leaders within the company and gain different perspectives. People at the company are very open to talking to interns and sharing their experiences and success stories. I also think it is really great that finance interns specifically have more opportunities and chances to meet and network with each other because of lunch and learns and other Finance Professional Development Program/Intern events.”
