2. Internship positions

During my internship, I worked as a Project Manager in the Global PMO team and a Data Analyst in the Global BI/Analytics team.

Having the opportunities to work in two teams, which are both my favorite areas, at the same time is sometimes challenging but definitely interesting and fun! I was initially assigned specific days to work with each team. However, as the workload got bigger and I had more involvement in projects, my team meetings and schedule were overlapping. Luckily, with the project management mindset, I managed to handle this situation well and still finished my assigned tasks and projects on time.
