Internship Employer: Midway

"The internship with Midway was great. I learned so much in a short time. One of the best parts of the internship was participating in meetings where I could learn the industry language, observe professionals conduct business, and witness the decision-making process on specific projects. Working with such a well-respected company was the highlight of my summer. After this experience, I know that I want to go into commercial development after I graduate."
