A majority of the work a VEGA intern does is project-based. Project Managers submit project parameters, including an outline of desired results, and the intern decides how to best meet their objective. Interns work on multiple projects in various areas simultaneously, maximizing the breadth of their experience during the term.
The Internship Program Manager reviews each project to ensure each meets the necessary requirements for optimal education, creativity, and impact. This means that interns will be working on projects that assist VEGA in reaching company goals and objectives.
Depending on an intern’s availability, they could be working on a number of projects at any given time. This gives them the opportunity to get a variety of work experiences in multiple areas across the company. Interns work with the Internship Program Manager to individualize their internship experience and gain exposure to careers that interest them.
Some intern positions incorporate ongoing project that include daily responsibilities. These projects vary and are usually position based. This allows interns to develop a real world work experience through which they hold sole responsibility for a given task.
