Sebastian: “I chose to intern at Copart because of the experience that I would receive. I couldn’t see myself getting the same exposure that I have received here anywhere else.”
What advice would you give to those looking for an internship in your field?
David: “For any intern looking for an internship in marketing or communications you need to apply, apply, apply! You never know what company you will match well with and have a great experience at. And after you’ve accepted an offer, be prepared to work, work, work.”
Sebastian: “There are plenty of opportunities for interns. Marketing is always growing and all you have to do is apply and be open to new opportunities.”
What is one way you have grown while interning at Copart?
