What do you do as an intern at this organization?

I help organize the scheduling and delivery of the various types of services that G2 provides to its clients. This includes using platforms like Google Calendar, Connectwise, and Zoom to ensure that all planned visits and meetings are accurately entered, occur on time, and that services are delivered. I'm also responsible for the documentation of Standard Operations Procedure documents that outline best practices for certain company-wide processes.

How did you find this internship?

Friend referral

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I enjoy learning the new platforms used in the industry and feeling as though I'm actually contributing to the success of the company. Communicating with the various employees of the company, learning their roles, and about the industry is very fulfilling.

What do you find challenging?

Being thrown into multiple platforms I've never seen before was definitely challenging at first. I keep making progress on learning these platforms, but without much guidance, seeing them was definitely challenging at first.

What advice would you offer to someone who wants to make the most of an internship like yours?

Reach out to friends and families who work in companies that interest you. Online job applications have such a low success rate that trying to find a job through LinkedIn, Indeed, etc. is very frustrating. My family does not personally have useful connections to companies like G2, so I leveraged my network of friends and their parents to secure a job.
