“What I enjoyed the most about Olympus is the company culture. Olympus culture is very different from other big corporations I’ve had exposure to in the past – teams hold outdoor walking meetings, there are so many opportunities to volunteer in the community, and a Colleague Affinity Network that is constantly working to improve Olympus for every demographic. Olympus truly has a focus on not only making customers’ lives better, but their employee’s lives as well. The amount of autonomy I was given really stood out to me as well. As an intern I had some say in which projects interested me and where I wanted to focus my time. ~ Karlynn Miller, Project Management Summer Intern.

“My internship within the Business Development and Strategy team in the Medical Systems Group allowed me to work on a good mix of short-term and long-term projects, mostly involving financial analysis and market research for potential acquisitions. Getting to work for a multinational corporation has been an awesome experience. Working with people from all over the globe provides a wealth of different perspectives and a diversity of ideas. It has given me an opportunity to both develop professionally and broaden my world view.” ~ Michael Peiffer, Business Development and Strategy Summer Intern.

“As the Talent Acquisition intern I was given the opportunity to work on a variety of projects like updating Olympus' recruiting material, acting as a talent acquisition specialist, and leading some data analysis projects. At Olympus, my projects allowed me to apply what I learned in school and build on that as well. My managers gave me so much support while still managing to challenge me every day. My co-workers really cared about their jobs and it was exciting to work around such capable and hard-working people. I was surprised by how much I learned and grew personally and professionally, even within just one summer.”~ Jordan M., Talent Acquisition Summer Intern.
