Virtual Internship and Professional Growth
Stella Obeng-Darko ’22, Accra, Ghana
Major: Quantitative Economics
Minor: Computer Science
During the fall Semester of my junior year, I partook in an internship with a property management firm in London,UK. With the current job outlook seemingly virtual, I wanted to use this opportunity to gain some skills that can prepare me for a career where I might not work in an office. My goal was to gain general knowledge of the industry and overall business ethics.
I will take you through what my daily tasks looked like and how the job met some of my expectations beforehand. We’ll get a breakdown of the positive aspects and also what can be improved, in my opinion. I will analyze how it might compare to an in-person experience instead.
