Rate Your Internship Experience


What was the biggest factor in rating your satisfaction level of your internship?
I would have liked to do less filing and organizing - more drafting of legal documents and assisting the attorneys would have made it excellent! Working with people who made me comfortable and prepared a comfortable learning environment that wasn't intimidating. The internship was basic and short, it did not do much to greatly advance my professional development. My ability to step outside a classroom and see what was actually important to the business Very positive experience but not excellent because it would have been nice if the internship duration was longer for more opportunities and chance to create deeper relationships. Overall I felt as though I was an entry level employee and that I was completing work relevant to the project and to the firm. I spent the majority of my time performing the substantive work of the organization, not free administrative labor. I felt that I was a member of the team. Not only was I meeting, and connecting, with professionals from around the industry, but I felt that my work was actually producing tangible result
