this summer, i have the privilege of living in chicago and interning with abbot global healthcare and research!!!
i’ve known since september of 2016 that i would be working there, but we got our placements this week and its gotten me excited all over again. we didn’t get to put in preferences for where we wanted to be assigned, but chicago was my top choice, so i am pretty stoked about it. i’ll be working as a manufacturing/supply chain intern in their diagnostics division and i couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity i have with them.
after doing my reasearch a while back, i found out that abbott does so much more than i originally thought they did (if you’re interested in looking at all of their products, go here). i love the fact that their customer base is so diverse and that what they produce can touch each and every aspect of someone’s life. they’re all about making life better while creating more possibilities for more people through the power of health.
anyways (i could go on and on about how excited i am), i wanted a place where i could share my experiences, struggles, thoughts and exiting new finds with family and friends throughout the summer. i figured here was probably the easiest place to do it. so, if you are interested in following along, make sure you check back every so often to see what i am up to! i’ll try to post at least once or twice a week if i’m not too insanely busy.
thank you so much to all my friends and family who have already supported me and cheered me on!
i’ll see you soon chicago!
