"Joining the Nokia team is a uniquely enriching opportunity to jump-start anyone's career in tech. Along with networking, my internship allowed me to ask critical questions to panelists and peers to discover my future goals, and ultimately taught me how to shape my education and applications to get the most out of my degree, while appealing to hiring managers. Above all, the ability to decide how I tackled each project, along with the exceptional support of a mentor, facilitated a far more in-depth and rapid learning process than a classroom environment has ever provided, with skills that will carry over into my future endeavors."
