  • Hello,

    I am highly interested in doing a summer internship but being that I am in the U.S at the moment there are a few things that I should find out before I apply. Is it a paid internship or non paid? How long would the program go for/could I do it over the summer? I’m sure there would be a lot more to take into consideration than that so if you think of any other important information that you think I should know, please, share, I’d leave to know everything that I can about the program!

    • Hi Michelle,

      Thanks for reaching out! An internship is a great way to jump start your career. Be on the lookout for an email from me with additional information.
      Best regards,
      Kaylea
