My experience with ProfIntern

Program: Individual internships

27 января, 2022

My internship was in an oncological research lab where I worked alongside a team to help them run experiments in a long-term study. I was responsible for setting up and implementing daily experiments, processing samples, and entering data into the database.

Before arriving, I had all the classic stereotypes of Russia, and while I saw no bears and drank only a little vodka, Russia had so much else to offer. Saint Petersburg was the most beautiful city I’ve ever seen and continuously surprised me with its history and detail. I loved my time in Russia and made many close connections who I hope to see again someday. The people I met were accommodating and enthusiastic to show me Russian culture and traditions. There was so much I was able to learn about Russia that I never could have gotten from a textbook or class. Being fully immersed allowed me to understand and speak Russian better than the two years of classes I had taken before arriving.

I would highly recommend Profintern as they were invaluable in helping to figure out the details of becoming quickly established in a foreign country. I was glad they were able to use my previous experience to find a position that was suited to my skills. I learned so much that I will keep with me for the rest of my life, if you have this opportunity take it!
