Close Concerns

Dartmouth Fellow / Junior Associate

July - November 2021 • San Francisco, CA

What I liked

I loved being in an environment that pushes me to embrace high levels of responsibility. At Close Concerns, I was challenged with new tasks every day, and the learning never stopped. I came in not knowing much about diabetes, and now I walk away with so many valuable lessons. I also enjoyed getting personalized time with my boss and the associates. The mentorship component of an internship I think is very important as well, and being able to learn from those older, wiser, and more experienced than me has been wonderful.

What I wish was different

I wish it would have been longer! Should've started earlier perhaps.

Advice

I would say that you must be very flexible and willing to shift priorities. Embrace whatever challenge comes your way, and do not feel discouraged when a day is difficult

Advice

Prepare yourself for a steep learning curve, and if you want to get the most out of this experience, be ready to show that you are engaged and willing to do more than what is asked of you
