The innovative miniature oxygen generators developed by O2 Technologies have brought a major breakthrough in oxygen related consumer products.

Summary of Internship

At RecycleTech/O2 Technologies, I perform many different tasks. Some of things I do is add information to databases, research, file papers, throw away garbage, vacuum the floors, stuff envelopes, send mail, etc. I also help downstairs at the warehouse where they produce their oxygenated products by helping with the packaging and assembling. Besides from the many tasks there was to complete, my mentor and the many employees at RecycleTech/O2 Technologies has taught me several business values and how oxygen can help purify the body and make a person healthier. So far, the senior experience at this company is great because it exposes one to both engineering and business.
