"I have had the best time as an intern here on TA. I have not only gotten stronger in skills like web development and team building but, I also got to network with a lot of other companies and learn how to build up my resume and talking points with future employers."
“I'm a perfectionist and I don't like to make mistakes, but everyone I worked with was incredibly patient with me and wanted to help me learn. Cam encouraged me to try things even when I thought I wouldn't be good at them and I learned so much from this approach. The Awesome Inc team was so friendly and inclusive, and they never made me feel like an intern who was just passing through. Once you work with Awesome Inc in any capacity, you know you can always find a friend there. The connections you make there are strong and long-lasting.”
“Getting to work at AINC felt like joining a family. There were times that I felt unprepared or underqualified for my position, but AINC never let me fail. There were so many people who were quick to answer my questions and help me solve problems. When I felt unsure of myself, there was always someone cracking jokes or making me feel comfortable. I have never felt so welcome in a workspace so quickly. I felt like the whole staff embraced me as part of the family the second I got there. Working there has shown me what a good team looks like. I was and still am so proud to have worked with them.”
"You should totally apply to TA. You learn so much from the people you work with and you get to work on projects that you truly enjoy. There are also so many opportunities for you to hang out with the team and have some really fun experiences!"

"My Team Alpha experience allowed me to not only learn so much about the field I am passionate about, but also allowed me to interact with and learn new things by working cooperatively with people in other fields. I worked in the small but mighty development team and made some serious changes to the Awesome Inc website which I was very proud of. I also enjoyed being a part of 5 Across and participating in any fun side projects that would pop up from time to time."
“Having the opportunity to be a part of Team Alpha, and the overall Awesome Inc crew, is one of the best opportunities I have had in my life thus far. Instantly after joining the internship program, the entire team welcomed me with open arms, making me feel a part of the Ainc family, while also helping tailor my experience to myself, and my interests within the marketing industry. Throughout the internship I had the privilege of being a part of many different teams, helping coordinate and market many different facets of the Awesome Inc Startup Pipeline, gaining loads of real world experience. I could not recommend this program to students and young professionals enough, I miss being a part of the Ainc family everyday!”
