“From day one at my Ericsson summer internship, I felt like an important part of the team. I was able to identify areas for personal growth, work on high-level projects, and gain exposure to different parts of the company. I am happy to say that my internship was extended into the fall, allowing me to be a part of long-term projects.”

“I could not have asked for a better summer internship experience than what I had at Ericsson. Ericsson not only provided a platform to enhance my professional skills but also helped me enhance my people skills. Ericsson’s  AWEsome work culture, technology leaders, supportive people and fun events made me come back to it. I am grateful to be converted from an intern to a full-time employee now.”

“Although the idea of starting my 16-month internship remotely was daunting, my experience has been nothing short of amazing. I work on tasks that bring meaningful change within my team with constant support from my colleagues. The University Relations team handled remote collaboration very well through arranging groups of internsthat can bond together. I look forward to continuing my personal growth for the remainder of placement!”
