Finance operations intern

June - August 2019 • Tulsa, OK

What I liked

Verizon allows its interns to get the full experience of the business. Each intern is on a specific project that allows them to branch out and learn new business tips and tricks. Verizon is very big on continuing your education. While I was there I had the chance to take a SQL class and learn the basics of tableau which I have since used in my semester classes.

What I liked

Everyone I met was incredibly knowledgeable and willing to help anytime any of the interns had questions. We had our own project and made a measurable impact on the company.
