  • Optional
  • Paid

My advice for future interns would be to make the most out of your experience. Make mistakes, learn and grow into your role because it's a different world outside of the classroom. My time at LightSpeed Logistics was very positive. The biggest takeaway I could take from my experience here is I learned how to connect and build relationships which is a very important skill to have in any position. It's helped shape me personally and professionally into a better individual."
