What do recent interns say are the best things about working with us?

"Definitely the support, help and knowledge around me, the work I have been involved in, the benefits, the willingness of PTA for all interns to learn as much as possible by going out to site, sitting in on meetings, the extra stuff we would otherwise not be exposed to and the list goes on."
