Summary of Internship

As an intern for a forensic engineering company, I get to observe and assist in the activities that my mentor, Mr. Goldblatt does on a daily basis. I have been with him to investigations, court and he has taught me about the many kinds of cases he deals with. In addition to these exciting activities, I get to observe and assist what he does in his office. He taught me how to write up his cases; he has a binder for each case. I also help him file papers, figure out new programs, and I even got to use the C.A.D. program. Overall, the internship can be very hands on and is a great learning experience.
