I have to admit that I didn’t really know what to expect when I first applied for an internship here at AETN. In the past, I had worked internships that were mostly busy work. AETN was different. I was actually helping to contribute. Overall my experience at AETN was a great one and I’d highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great starting point in looking for a career.
