Male standing in front of MetLife sign“My summer internship at MetLife was great because it allowed me to gain exposure to a huge Fortune 50 corporation, work on actual projects that will impact the business, and ask as many questions as I wanted. My favorite part of the summer was the intern innovation challenge, in which my team earned 2nd place out of 11 teams. The Cary, N.C. campus was beautiful, the people at MetLife were so kind and helpful, and I’m very grateful I could have this experience as a sophomore.”
