What advice on the internship application process would you give to another TU student interested in this internship?
Showing up to meet everyone in person helped me get the internship after applying.

Be prepared to be adaptable, learn quickly, and follow rules closely. Develop a good relationship with the employer, so they can be a future reference or employer.
