My experience


Work varied by the semester, but I spent a lot of time doing inventory of the chemicals on site. I also helped out with environmental audits.

This internship was ultimately why I changed my career path. I realized that the industrial setting for environmental engineering was very formulaic - I was frequently updating spreadsheets to prepare reports that were submitted annually. ||I found I was more freedom to explore my own ideas than this position allowed, so I switched to a research-focused career path.

Would recommend it to people who...

are interested in environmental work in an industrial setting and thrive on structure

Would NOT recommend it to people who...

want a flexible schedule
