This summer I had the fortune of landing my dream internship at eBay, where I spent three months working with the social media marketing team. The company offers one of the best internship programs for MBAs, and they invest a lot into giving interns a meaningful experience.

While there were many things I loved about my summer, here are a few personal highlights:

My project and team. 

From the moment I arrived, my coworkers made me feel integrated into the fabric of the team. For my project, I had the perfect balance of autonomy and support. They trusted my expertise and wanted me to succeed.

The company culture.

eBay has a very supportive environment. People were generally open with their time, willing to chat, teach and learn. This is an amazing opportunity when you’re surrounded by so many smart people!

The MBA treatment. 

There were many events throughout the summer, including a huge overnight welcome party, a three-day conference in San Francisco, learning lunches, and more.  The company also set aside special events for the MBA interns. This was an amazing opportunity to make new friends along the MBA journey and expand my network.

I feel transformed by my experience this summer at eBay. It was a whirlwind, and I loved every minute.
