Corporate Reflection

"I suppose the first thing I should discuss is why I took this internship with Stromberg Consulting, and what I hoped to gain from it. My degree is in Computing and Education, and I am in my final semester. My coursework has been interesting enough, but I felt that I wasn't given as much opportunity to practically apply what I learned about instructional technology and the interactions between people and computers. Also,-'I wanted a little more focus on the corporate side-'So I decided that getting an internship would be a great way to balance out my coursework with practical experience in a corporate setting-'

I believe I learned a lot from this internship. I was exposed to the entire planning process that is important in the development of a website. Although it wasn't technically an educational or web-based training site, it was still a site that had to be carefully thought out-'

I think one of the most important things I got out of this experience was learning how to work in a very different culture and environment that I am typically used to-'Of course, I didn't expect everyone to adjust to me. I still did my best to adjust on my own, but it was reassuring to know that my supervisor and coworkers understood where I was coming from."
