Summary of Internship

At my internship, my job consisted of buying items that the company needed for their studies, packing boxes for delivery, working in the copy room, and also delivering packages. Although my work was pretty simple, it was work that needed to be done in order for the company to function successfully. I learned a lot from watching the employees work and also talking with them. After interning there, I have a good idea of what goes on at Perception Research.
