Learning experience

Communication within a workplace is key. It is essential to communicate within all levels of the company. It is also vital to show that all levels of workers are valued.

What advice would you give?

Do thorough research into all companies before accepting an internship. It is also important to know that even though you may just be an intern, you should still be valued by your employer, so speak up if this is not happening.
