Summary of Internship

I started every day at 8am and ended at 4pm. Although it may seem that the hours are long, they actually feel very short. My job at internship is to create chemical samples in the lab for customers. We receive several formulas throughout the day, and recreate the original with small changes to improve the quality. After creating the batch, we check and finalize the product to send it to our client. If the client approves of the batches, we send the recipe to the production line for mass creation of the product.
