What was your favorite part about the Blackhawk Internship Program?

My favorite part about the Blackhawk Internship Program was the people! The company culture is amazing, and even in just two months there I felt like I was a part of a close-knit family. These are the same people who trusted me to lead my own projects without micro-managing, taught me new things every day, made me feel valued and encouraged me to chase my dreams.

Did you enjoy working in a “start-up” like workspace? Did you feel like you benefited from being in a smaller work environment?

Oh, 100%! I felt like I was entrusted with more responsibility and had more creative freedom to help shape the Blackhawk brand from a social perspective than if I tried to do what I did in a larger environment and having to go through more people and approvals. I also loved not being stuck inside a cubicle all day. The workspace allowed me to interact with people all day, move around and be near natural lighting and go on outdoor team outings every so often, and that allowed me to feel and work better. I also got to know each team member so much more being in this kind of environment, and I truly value building those relationships.
