I cannot believe it’s already the last day of my BatesMeron internship, but I guess it’s a good thing to feel sad about work ending! I’m leaving here knowing that I was very lucky to work here with such fantastic people. Connecting with coworkers, improving my design skills, participating in meetings and brainstorms, and being welcomed into this family-like team was such an unexpected and rewarding experience.
My confidence using Photoshop and Illustrator has definitely increased, which was just the thing I needed. Confidence in one’s work is extremely crucial, and BatesMeron has challenged me to share my thoughts, ideas and designs with confidence. This team is filled with positive energy, encouragement and determination to get their projects done on time—and to perfection.
My internship experience also helped me get more excited about life after graduation. It would be nice to be able to work at a place that is even half as fun and awesome as BatesMeron. Maybe I shouldn’t set such high standards, but how could I not? This place is awesome, and it’ll be weird to wake up three days a week and know that I won’t be able to see everyone here.
I leave here with no regrets, just the satisfaction of everything I was able to absorb and learn. Thank you to everyone for being so nice, for teaching me and for giving me a glimpse of how fun work can be. Keep in touch!
This has been your intern, Josey, signing out.
