Summer Internship Assignment #6

Here is the list of seven questions from early in June that you were told to be able to “reflect” on while at your internship. Many of you have finished or are getting close to finishing your internship.  Please answer the following questions in 3-4 sentences minimum, each.  Adjust your answers based on your individual internship experiences.

1) What impact does conservation of resources or  climate change have on your company?

2) How essential is technology to your company in its mission?  Is the company very Globalized?  How “Flat” is it?

3) What impact does government regulation  play in how your company performs its “business”?

4) What is the “office” environment like?  Hierarchy? Formality?

5) What seems to motivate people there? Is the atmosphere positive/negative? Upbeat? Serious?

6) What impact does gender and cultural diversity play out at the company?

7) What type of personality traits or leadership “styles” does your mentor exhibit?
