I have now finished my internship. The ten weeks I spent interning for Gartner in Arlington, Virginia absolutely flew by. I am so thankful for my boss, my mentor, the other interns in my program, and all the team members who helped me learn so much and achieve even more.
Looking back on this internship, I have been so grateful for how much I learned. I learned about the entire financial services industry, how corporations operate, and how I worked best. While it wasn’t always easy and rewarding, I can happily say that I wouldn’t have traded this experience for anything else.
On our last day, all the interns on my team came to our office for one last lunch. All of the members of our team had personalized cards, superlatives, and gifts (in the form of cookies and cupcakes) ready for us. We got to hang out with our team one last time and it was really nice.
Walking out of our building and driving back across the DC border to my dorm, I can say that this was a memorable summer.
