McInnes Cooper - Elise Lynch

This month I am interning in the IT department at McInnes Cooper, Atlantic Canada's largest law firm. I walked in without much of an IT background, but the team at McInnes Cooper helped me utilize the skills I had and build on those immensely. I'm very fortunate, because unlike most internships where you work with one team, I have the opportunity to work with a new one every week. I began with the Training team.  I participated in their online training courses, used to teach employees how to use the firm software. I was also given the task of writing articles for the knowledge base section of McInnes Cooper's employee website. These KB articles vary from explaining how to save a PDF, to saving shortcuts the Quick Access Toolbar in Microsoft Word. This week I also get to work with the Help Desk team. They are currently implementing a massive core software update to Windows 10, and it's really interesting to see how much of an impact that can have on a company. I'm really excited to see what's in store for next week.  This internship is an amazing opportunity that has shown me how much work goes in behind the scenes at a law firm.  It has taught me so many skills that I will take with me for the rest of my life.
