Summary of Internship

I was under the IT department for Yu & Associates with my mentor, George Wang. In IT, I generally do a lot of studying about different programs such as Microsoft Excel and Joomla, which is a website creator. After watching videos and understanding the concepts, I am assigned a task that utilizes those skills that will ultimately help my mentor with his work. An example of this is if my mentor asks for an excel spreadsheet that is dynamic and uses different formulas so he can just plug in a number and everything will be calculated. If George has not assigned me anything, the environmental engineers would have me research some locations that they have projects at and take notes like how many square feet is the area and take screenshots of the location on Google Maps and Bing.
