The Power of Mentorship

One of the most integral parts of our summer internship is having a mentor who will serve as your dedicated guide, coach and friend — likely beyond the 12 weeks of the program. Our mentors do not take their responsibility as a mentor lightly. They possess a strong willingness to share their skills, knowledge and expertise, and are committed to helping interns get the most out of their experience.
