Summary of Internship
I am an intern in the IT department at Arts Horizons. This internship is a great asset to my experience in the business workplace and in the IT field. Part of my work includes hardware and software troubleshooting, and the other half of my internship I help out around the office with various jobs. This provides me with hands on experience in my interested college major, and gives me a feel of how it is like to work in a business workplace. It also gives me an opportunity to apply the skills I have learned in academic courses in tasks as part of my job.
