Hear what past interns have to say about their NAL experience:

My favorite part about my summer internship was learning new skills on the job. Tasks that were difficult for me when I started became much easier for me by the end of the summer which was a really good feeling. Now that I am a full-time employee, I am able to build off of the things I learned in my internship which has made for a very easy transition.
Justin Nees: 2019 EE Intern, Full-Time Equipment Engineer I

Through my internship I learned that asking questions can rarely be a negative thing. As an intern, no one expects you to be an expert on everything NAL, but they do expect you to have the tools to be able to learn. Knowing how to ask the right questions is a valuable skill to have as you move through your career.

I was most surprised by NAL’s company culture. Everyone is very friendly and inviting. NAL also has a fantastic activity committee that plans fun events throughout the office. Last fall we had a food truck day and a costume party for Halloween (which I’m pretty sure our President won). NAL offers service days and frequently has events promoting the wellness of employees, such as yoga sessions at the local rec center.

To those considering the NAL internship program, go for it! Classroom learning is great, but hands-on experience is irreplaceable. I recommend going into the interview prepared and confident in yourself, but humble enough to know that you don’t know everything. Express a willingness to learn and bring in new ideas.

Haylee Sigmon, 2019 Production Control Intern, Full-Time Buyer I

I really enjoyed the time spent outside of the department with other interns. It allowed me to build relationships with more than just those I work closely with on a day to day basis. My favorite experience of the summer was touring Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana where I was able to see NAL’s lights installed on American-made vehicles.
Jack Nuxoll: 2019 Manufacturing Engineer Intern

The internship greatly strengthened my skills with the Windows operating system. My main project was computer replacements. IT replaces a certain model of computer every summer. The project consisted of imaging the computer with NAL’s computer image, personalizing the computer with the user’s programs and files, and deploying it to the user. I also helped by completing hands on IT tickets, such as cleaning keyboards, replacing batteries, installing programs, and setting up new hire laptops. Additionally, I compiled data into spreadsheets, such as taking hardware inventory and consolidating quotes on previously purchased CAD machines.

I really enjoyed working in the IT department and felt very welcomed by everyone at NAL.

Emily Hall: 2019 Information Technology Intern

My responsibilities as a program management intern mostly included assisting launch engineers and program mangers during the launch process at different stages. Throughout the internship I learned the launch process for a new lamp, the importance of attention to detail, and how to create countermeasures for issues relative to my department.
