When I first received the email that I had been accepted for an internship at Communitech, I was anxious yet eager! All I hoped for was that this internship would give me an opportunity to learn something new.
All my expectations have been met and surpassed, I have learned so much in the short span of just one month. From the very first day, I have received the chance to work in various departments at Communitech. From working with the small startup group to the IT department, I have gotten to explore different working environments and job types. However, my main job is to help input data into a program called Salesforce. This is essentially a program to communicate with the business’s customers, it gives you the ability to set up campaigns and enlist all contacts.
My favorite part of this internship is the working environment and friendly people. Essentially, Communitech is set up as a hub where various different startup groups and small enterprises come to work and innovate. The building is quite interesting, as it was built in an old leather factory. There is a slide, ping pong table, and even a basketball court within the Communitech office. Also, there are always events happening throughout the building. For example, just recently I got to attend a workshop about girls in tech, where we discussed methods to increase the number of females you choose to study in STEM fields and pursue a career in technology-based jobs.
Overall, this one month has been an amazing experience where I have gotten the chance to explore and learn more about job opportunities that exist after high school. I have also gained a new set of skills. I am very grateful for this opportunity and sad that this month has quickly come to an end! Interning at Communitech has been an unforgettable experience that I will cherish for the rest my life.
