As a college-student, just out of your freshman year, a full-time summer internship at a well-reputed firm, with experienced professionals light-years ahead of your own knowledge and experience, can seem like a daunting task. You’re full of grandiose expectations about how you’re going to make the most out of your internship and be the best intern possible, but very often you’re left disappointed with your lack of work, although the copious amounts of free coffee and internet can make up for your boredom.

The phenomenal team, amazing office and interesting, changing work keeps are only a few things on a very long list of why my summer at Lightbox made interns everywhere jealous!
