As we wrap up this week, unfortunately so does our summer 2017 internship program. These past ten weeks have been extremely informative, exciting, engaging and very fun. As interns we have learned so much from our teams and mentors, as well as from our fellow interns who have become some of our great friends. As we say our final goodbyes (hopefully not for too long!), we would like to share some of our favorite memories of the summer.
Throughout the summer, as many of you know, us lucky interns have traveled near and far for several different intern events. We kayaked on the Charles River, solved strategic rooms at Boda Borg, cheered for our favorite team at the Red Sox game, and much more. Through these events we have gotten to know both interns and other employees at the company in a different environment.
Traveling to Windsor to tour our manufacturing plant was definitely a highlight of the summer. At the plant, we were able to see everything we have worked on in Waltham come to life. Not only were we able to walk around the plant and explore, we also learned more about the different processes that are active at the plant through various presentations by Windsor employees. It was great to meet other Vistaprint employees from different locations.
Another feature of the summer internship program consisted of frequent Vistachats, where members of the company spoke to us about their experience at Vistaprint and their unique path that has led each speaker to where they are now. The sessions took place during lunch where the interns first listened to the speaker, and then eagerly were welcome to ask questions. It was a pleasure meeting other employees at the company.
Overall, the internship program was amazing, and one we will not forget. Lauren Dierker, a fellow intern said “the Cimpress internship was an amazing experience. I did valuable work, was part of a great team, and met amazing people. I couldn’t have asked for a better summer!”
After watching our fellow interns presentations, depicting what work they have done this summer, it is clear that each intern was able to produce amazing tools and data that will hopefully impact the company in the future. We will miss you Vistaprint! Thank you for a great summer.
