Would you recommend this internship to a friend?
Are you returning?
I really think my internship experience was good. I got to work and interact with many people. What I disliked was that I had too many meetings per day and I worked overtime almost every day. I guess it is part of the job, but given the virtual environment it was a little frustrating for me. Overall I learned a lot about hardware components and Microsoft’s culture.
