It’s true what they say – time really does fly when you’re having fun! We can’t help but feel nostalgic, thinking about the great memories that we made this summer with our vibrant interns. This summer has been full of creativity and innovation, learning and discovery. But above all, this summer demonstrated just how fun work could be. From networking opportunities to group excursions, we made sure that our interns were fully immersed in the Adobe Life.
Earlier this summer, we opened our doors to 132 students from premiere institutes all across the country, eager to join our various product teams and Adobe Research labs. Both sets of interns had the opportunity to work on current projects with their teams and mentors while also having the liberty to customize their internship experiences. Their fresh and curious minds brought invaluable perspective to their respective teams that will be presented at the end of the summer when they share their final projects.
“Transitions are hard. Interning at Adobe was my first industry experience and I still remember how intimidated I was on the day I joined. Little did I know that these two months would prove to be one of the best learning experiences of my life.
From the very first day, I was treated as a valued member of the team and I was encouraged to take part and get involved in discussions. It felt good to know that you actually matter and are not just another temporary employee. They care about your growth and learning.
It was thrilling to realize that the work I was involved in had the potential to affect millions of users worldwide. This was a great motivation in itself. This is one of the major reasons why interning at Adobe is so amazing.
The work culture at Adobe is simply amazing. What truly makes an organization great is the people that work for it. What I liked the most here was how people were always eager to help each other out and pushed one another to achieve success.
Over the last two months I have learnt many things, one of them being to not shy away from asking for help. It is important to know that you are here for learning and it is okay to not know something. Learn and grow. Push yourself to widen your comfort zone by embracing new challenges. Nothing can match the satisfaction and self-confidence one feels when the job is finally done.
The other important thing I learnt was to observe and absorb. There are people who have certain qualities about them, which make them who they are. Observe them. See what it is in them that make you feel inspired. The things that you admire about them are the things that you want in yourself. Absorb as much as you can. Look around yourself and let it all sink in. Everybody has something to offer and each experience has in itself something to learn from.” – Nikita G., Adobe Acrobat product intern
“One of the things that really stood out to me about Adobe is the work culture. The entire team was very approachable and made us feel valued all through the internship. It was far from formal and less intimidating than I had imagined. While getting started my mentors were really interested in knowing what were my interests and what projects that they had that could benefit me to support my future aspirations.
The internship was a great opportunity for getting exposed to and thinking in sync with the latest technological trends of the digital world. It feels very motivating to work on the projects knowing the explorations we did were treated like a ground work for even bigger projects that will be coming in the future. There were so many new technologies that I had never seen before and did not even know Adobe was even working on. I cannot stress this enough how wonderful it feels to be involved in working on tools that have been shaping the creative processes of creatives all around the world.
The internship has a lot of fun parts to it as well. We had our intense foosball matches, experimental photo shoots, guest talks, creative jams, team outings etc. The best part is that the interns are treated well within the company and you feel part of the community. To sum it up my internship with Adobe has been insightful, inspiring and a whole lot of fun.” -Poonam S., XD Intern
