2017 Intern/Current: Project Manager
“As a summer intern, I was immediately thrown into the fast-paced, collaborative, and entrepreneurial environment that embodies Zayo. I worked side by side with a Director day in and day out getting hands-on work in my field of study. I was also given the opportunity to work in a group of interns from all different backgrounds to come up with real solutions for the company. Now, as a part-time employee, I’m constantly working on projects that excite me in an environment that fosters creativity and people that are always willing to help. I’ve been able to work in several teams here at Zayo working on a myriad of projects that have grown me not only in my field of study but as a young professional ready to enter the workforce.”
2017 Intern/Current: Marketing Coordinator
“The internship program at Zayo fosters an amazing environment for getting your foot in the door to the professional world. The events, such as the lunch and learn sessions and Internovate, really allow you to build strong connections with your fellow interns and other employees across all departments while teaching the ins and outs of the company and how to make a good impression! Not only was I encouraged to pursue my own projects and cultivate a passion for working hard, I also made amazing friends along the way. The opportunities I’ve received from the intern program at Zayo have helped mold me into a stronger leader, and they are the reasons I’m delighted to still be working for the company during my senior year of college.”
