Danielle V., Quality Assurance
The greatest part of my Lindternship was getting to know the people of Lindt USA, learning from their passion, and being included as part of the team on day one. This was far more than a summer internship; it was an experience. I was involved with many impactful projects within QA and food safety and gained exposure to multiple subsets of the company – both within and outside of my academic major. I lived in New Hampshire for the first time and enjoyed spending my weekends exploring new places in New England and hiking in the White Mountains. I grew both professionally and personally during the summer, and I am so grateful to have had a Lindternship Experience.
