Intern Life – Part 3: Farewell and stay in touch…

August 25, 2011

Our intern season is coming to an end in many regions around the globe. A happy ending. Some interns are going to continue working at Adobe for a few more months, but most are about to say goodbye, pack their bags, and get ready to head back to school.

We took the opportunity to ask our interns to share what their expectations were of their internships; what excited them about being part of the Adobe family; how their internship experience will prepare them for their future careers; why did they choose to intern with us, as well as perks and benefits they enjoyed using during their term. Here’s what they had to say…
