Indiana INTERNnet celebrated internship excellence on Feb. 3, 2016, at the 10th Annual IMPACT Awards luncheon. Though the event is over and the winners have been announced, we are continuing to celebrate the nominees’ successes.
These are their stories.
TransWorks was a great internship experience. The atmosphere at TransWorks is very welcoming. Everyone is friendly and willing to help, and I felt like I could talk to anyone in the office.
They also keep you involved with the company by inviting you to watch their softball games, join them for lunch, or go to TinCaps game with them. It was a far better experience than I ever imagined my first internship would be like, and I am extremely grateful for that.
TransWorks gave me the option of what kind of work I could do for them when I first began. I could either do something easy or something hard. I chose something hard, and I am so glad that I did and that they gave me the opportunity.
I was given a pivotal role in working on a capital project that could potentially earn the company a lot of money, and they let me work on it with a level of confidence that they would give to a tenured employee. This was a great opportunity to learn and grow as a software developer.
I definitely got a very worthwhile experience of how software development works and what a business environment is like, and I would highly recommend TransWorks. They gave me fantastic opportunities as an intern and as a person in a very hospitable environment.
