Quality Systems Intern

June - August 2019 • Madison, WI

What I liked

I loved the company atmosphere! Everyone is passionate, hardworking, and very friendly. I thought that Exact was a great place to work. We had a huge company picnic, after-work socials, free lunch-and-learns, "Coffee with Leaders," and I had lots of opportunities to acquire new skills and make connections. I also qualified for a housing stipend, which helped me a bit.

What I wish was different

I wish the company had told me I would be moving about between buildings, so I could've planned accordingly with a car or bike.

Advice

Talk to everyone! Reach out between departments, ask people what they do, and go to Coffee with Leaders! Don't be afraid to thank people for their time as well; the upper leadership is personable, respectable, and very friendly, and will usually take the time to respond to your email or message.

Internal Audit Intern

June - August 2019 • Madison, WI

What I liked

I was incredibly happy with my experience at Exact Sciences. From the start of my internship, I was given a ton of opportunities for growth and development. I learned so many things within the first few weeks and throughout the three months I spent there. My team, other interns, and everyone there was a blast to work with and I can't say enough good things about my experience.

What I wish was different

There truly wasn't much that I wish were different about this internship. There was a great work balance and I never felt like I was just doing busy work for the company.

Advice

Take advantage of the great people you will meet at this organization. The people at Exact Sciences are what make the organization what it is. You can learn so much from the paths that others took to get to where they are, and just about everyone there wants to help you reach your goals.

Inside Sales Intern

May - August 2019 • Madison, WI

What I liked

This internship was fantastic. Not only are the company’s values and goals easy to get behind, but management was extremely supportive throughout the company. The interns went through a month-long detailed training, were assigned a mentor, did the job of an actual inside sales rep with our own territories, and had opportunities to learn about their sales strategies and other positions throughout the company. Did I mention there was free coffee?

What I wish was different

Nothing. Fantastic internship.

Advice

Go for it!! This internship was in a different state, so not only did it allow me to develop professional skills and insight, it gave me a peak at the “real world” and showed me just how manageable it is to navigate change.

Processing Engineering Intern

May - August 2018 • Madison, WI

What I liked

I really enjoyed the ability to work directly with the company's clinical laboratory and learn more about the engineering process in industry, first-hand.

What I wish was different

I wish I had more consistent workload---sometimes there was plenty of meaningful projects to work on, but sometimes not so much.

Advice

Take the time to talk with people---the company culture is great and many of the people are really friendly!
