At Stryker, it is the culture and the people that truly matter. Before joining Stryker, I was afraid that I was not going to fit in. However, it is heartwarming to see how friendly, welcoming and inclusive everyone was. The office environment was constantly lively and warm. There were plenty of opportunities and events planned to bond the company which made me feel a part of this Stryker family. The company I was surrounded with made this first internship experience a memorable one.
I was provided with plenty of opportunities to grow as an individual, step out of my own comfort zone and push myself. Stryker was able to provide a nurturing environment for interns to grow and take part in making great changes to the company. I have not only developed technical skills like Excel, but more importantly, soft skills like communication. There was a lot of trust and autonomy given to interns in terms of taking ownership of our own projects and also making our own decisions. Additionally, I was able to seek the support I required from my supervisor. People were always willing to render help and assistance when I needed it, and it was amazing to see how everyone was so talented in their area of expertise. There was always something new to learn every day!
I was able to work directly with various stakeholders in ASEAN and gain exposure in the field right from the beginning of my internship. I am thankful to be part of the marketing department and to know that the work I had done translated into something helpful for the department and the company. It is comforting to know that I was able to make a change within a short timeframe.
I am truly grateful for all the opportunities I was granted, and every experience was priceless.
Stryker is truly a great place to work and I am thankful for all the bonds that were forged. Thank you to everyone, especially my supervisor, for the guidance, and I strongly encourage everyone to intern at Stryker if given the chance!
