Interview with Panasonic Energy Intern, Taylor

Here’s what the Panasonic Energy intern, Taylor had to say in a recent interview.

How did you find the internship opportunity at Panasonic?

I found the internship opportunity on LinkedIn. I applied to a few different roles but moved forward with Facilities Engineer.

How long were you an intern before you became an employee?

I interned for a whole year before I became a full-time employee. Panasonic was flexible with my work schedule during my senior year in college.

What were some of your biggest takeaways from your internship?

The biggest takeaway from my internship is that people make mistakes at every level. Don’t let fear of making mistakes stop you from progressing in your career. Learning how to recover is also a valuable experience.

How do you think the internship will be/has been beneficial to you as an employee?

My internship was so helpful as I transitioned to full-time employees because I was already so familiar with the verbiage, processes, and layout of the giant building. I could really jump right into projects as I had already had a year of training. It was extremely beneficial in kickstarting my career and success in my role.

If you could give one piece of advice to a student thinking about doing an internship, what would it be?

One piece of advice I would give a student who is thinking of interning here would be to jump right in. Learn as much as you can, get involved in as many projects as you can, and ask a lot of questions.
