About Intern Fieldnotes, Vol. 2

Not everyone gets to intern at their dream company. And not all internships are created equal.

For the second year, We Are Next invited summer interns and their companies to collaborate on a series that captures the internship experience. By sharing their day-to-day work, culture, challenges, learnings and advice, interns from all over the industry help make the internship experience accessible to more students and young talent.

The result is 11 pieces, releasing one per day over the next few weeks and the We Are Next Podcast. More than anything, I hope the voices, enthusiasm, and perspectives of young talent at the beginning of their careers will inspire you—whether you’re just starting out, a seasoned vet, or somewhere in between.
