Data Science Intern

May - August 2021 • St. Louis, MO

What I liked

I enjoyed that I was able to work flexible hours as well as doing a lot of independent work. Even though I worked much on my own I was able to ask coworkers for help at any time. They often reached out to me as well.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have been in an office at times to interact with my coworkers in a more personal setting. But this was not totally possible with the pandemic.

Advice

Sometimes opportunities like this come when you are not expecting it. I was put in contact with my boss during an academic advising meeting and I was not expecting to have an internship within the next couple days after that meeting. I would also say you can have valuable experience even if you are hours away from the people you are working with.
