As my internship with Indium Corporation ends, I have many people to thank.
First of all, I want to thank the Human Resources and Marcom departments, all of my fellow interns, the entire Quality department including my supervisor, Steve Foster, and Sr. Quality Engineer, Gary Rotzler – who I have worked so closely with throughout the summer and has taught me a lot. I am also grateful for every Indium employee that has helped me with my projects, helped me get involved with more projects, taught me new things, and even those that I have had the pleasure of having the slightest conversation with that have made my internship enjoyable. Without any of them, my internship with not have been the same.
I especially want to thank my very good friends, Mark Reece – Technical Support Engineer, and Mike Campbell – Manufacturing Engineer, for encouraging me to apply for the Indium Corporation internship program. If it was not for them, I would have never known how fantastic and eye-opening this experience was. I am grateful for everything I have learned, including my projects and the weekly business development Lunch and Learns.
Luckily for me, this is not the end. Indium Corporation has asked me to stay part-time while I finish up my last undergraduate college course. However, things will be different. I will be moving my desk from our Business Park Drive location in Utica, NY over to our Clinton, NY location, where I will be working on a project with Sr. Quality Engineer, Adam Lallier. Until then, I will be continuing to finish up the projects that I have been working on this summer. I am excited to see what new tasks I will be involved with when I move, and I am even more excited to learn more new things. Hopefully, by the time I finish up my last class at school, I will be able to find a nice full-time job with the company.
See you tomorrow,
Kim Flanagan – Indium Corporation Quality Engineering Intern, Class of 2016
