“Incredible mentorship, challenging and rewarding work, and intellectual people all around me ”

Dartmouth Fellow / Junior Associate

July 2021 - November 2021 San Francisco, CA
“I loved being in an environment that pushes me to embrace high levels of responsibility. At Close Concerns, I was challenged with new tasks every day, and the learning never stopped. I came in not knowing much about diabetes, and now I walk away with so many valuable lessons. I also enjoyed getting personalized time with my boss and the associates. The mentorship component of an internship I think is very important as well, and being able to learn from those older, wiser, and more experienced than me has been wonderful. ”
