Farewell Summer Interns

August 27, 2014

sj1As the summer comes to an end, we say farewell to more than 250 interns in the U.S. who spent their summer learning and experiencing all that Adobe has to offer.

Throughout the summer, interns had the chance to attend various events, hosted by Adobe’s University Talent team, to network and learn about opportunities offered at Adobe. The Summer events were kicked off with a Q&A session with Adobe President & CEO Shantanu Narayen, who shared personal stories and gave useful career advice.

San Francisco BaseballOther learning events included Creative Could and Marketing Cloud “Lunch & Learns,” as well as a variety of “Summertime Lunchtime Studio Series” featuring multiple Adobe Apps. There were also opportunities to socialize at organized wellness and social gatherings like a movie night, indoor rock climbing, kayaking, bowling and of course a baseball game!

Interns have now wrapped up their summer internships and at Adobe this means participating in an MBA Showcase or Intern Project Expo. Intern Project Expos and MBA Showcases were held in Lehi, San Francisco, San Jose and Seattle. All employees were invited to attend these events, and even some Executive Staff members were in the audience for the San Jose MBA Showcase! Each intern had the chance to present their projects and provide recommendations, with topics ranging from password management to wellness strategy roadmaps and social media initiatives.

Interns seeking their undergraduate and doctorate degrees were invited to take part in an Intern Project Expo. Employees were able to browse in a science fair-like setting, giving interns the chance to interact with people across departments. Employees were also  encouraged to vote for their favorite projects.

“Oftentimes, we don’t have a chance to see what the other interns are working on so the event was a great way to showcase the talents of this summer’s intern class,” said Liane L., a Legal Operations intern.

“Adobe is a company that prides itself on teamwork and collaboration as mechanisms for progress, and having an avenue to interact with, teach, and learn from other employees and each other is a testament to this philosophy. It made me feel like our work was truly valued,” said Nick C, a Finance intern.

For both MBA and undergraduate interns, spending a summer at Adobe far surpassed expectations and was a one-of-a-kind experience.

“It has been wonderful to be part of a workplace that cares about the causes that are important to me,” said Ileana F., an MBA Channel Marketing Automation Intern. “The small day-to-day details make all the difference like the compostable cups, farm-to-table produce, fantastic amenities, access to the latest and greatest technology, and the never-ending opportunities to get involved.”

“Adobe has a special culture that allows us to be genuine,” Andrew W, an MBA IT Security intern, mentioned. “I’m glad to have been here for the summer.”
