What are you doing this summer? I interning remotely with Intel's Ethics and Legal Compliance team. The internship started this summer, but will last a full year. It's being offered through SCU's Markkula Center for Applied Ethics.
What has been the most memorable part of your experience? On National Intern Day, I and some other interns had the opportunity to meet Intel's General Counsel, Steve Rogers. I asked him about the major legal challenges facing Intel and learned a lot about his unique career path. All of the legal professionals at Intel – Mr. Rogers included – have been willing to share their experiences and advice with the intern class, which I've really appreciated.
