Research & Development Internships
Research is critical to the advancement of all industries, so no matter your field of interest, you can find research opportunities. A summer research internship will not only give you the chance to develop your analytical and critical thinking, but also improve your technical writing and verbal communication skills. Additionally, it will also give you the opportunity to contribute to scientific and technological advancement. Be sure to use your research internship opportunity to become familiar with common office software packages including Microsoft Excel and other modeling software and languages used by the company such as SPSS and R. You could carry out tasks such as gathering data on consumer demographics for marketing research or evaluating data using statistical techniques and software. You could also create visual aids to interpret research results and participate in meetings where senior researchers interpret data for a client.
