What We Look For In A Company

Justine: Happy first day of freedom, dear readers, but the work never ends for Betina and I so we decided to start the week with Part 10 of the Internship FAQ’s series!

Today’s post deals with WHAT WE LOOK FOR IN A COMPANY. How do you know that this is the company you want to dedicate a sizable amount of your time too?
