Great Opportunities!


AT&T does a good job of keeping the interns engaged. I got to meet with interns from different departments. I even got to meet some of the top executives in the company. Working for AT&T means that you will be given difficult projects and a chance to show off your skills.


I can't really think of any, honestly.
