With the end of the summer around the corner, we wanted to check in with our summer interns one last time to get their thoughts on the program and their experiences at NeuLion. Even with the program being fairly new to the company, the overall consensus amongst the interns was that the internship was a valuable, fulfilling experience (which we love to hear!)
For those of you who may not know, the program was made up of two main components: department projects and a final intern project. While 90% of the interns’ day was focused on work within their respective departments, they also collaborated on a common project, which allowed them all to become more familiar with NeuLion’s end-to-end OTT platform. We asked the group to test some of NeuLion’s powered services and propose potential new enhancements that could be incorporated into the services. This collaboration not only allowed our interns to gain a better understanding of the industry and our work, but also build solid relationships and leave a lasting imprint on the company. While we are sad to see them go, we are glad that this experience gave them the chance to grow professionally and personally.
But don’t just take our word for it. Here are some of our interns’ reflections on the summer.
"Working at NeuLion was the experience of a lifetime. It allowed me to grow professionally and personally in more areas than I thought possible. By meeting great people, I was able to become a more well-rounded member of the information security field. It is an experience I will never forget." - Matt, Security Intern
“Interning at NeuLion has allowed me to meet many new people, and gave me a taste of actual business experience. The environment at NeuLion is especially positive, as most people there will not hesitate to answer your questions or strike up a conversation. As a development intern, it was a great way to see how skills I learned in the classroom could translate to business.” - Felix, Development Intern
"This was my second year as an intern at NeuLion, and it has continued to be a great experience. Getting the chance to meet new people, and work with experienced professionals has helped me to get a better idea of what I might like to do in the future.” - John, QA Intern
As we close the book on another summer, it is sad to see such an interactive program come to an end. It is more than apparent that the interns have gained valuable experience from their work this summer, and we hope they continue to apply these new skills as they navigate the next steps of their careers. From all of us here at NeuLion, we want to thank our interns for their hard work, dedication and drive this summer. We wish you all the best!
