Past Interns have said

  • This internship sharpened my skills at independent work. I was forced to decide what I needed to do, design what deliverables would convey the completed work, and how I should approach certain problems.
  • I developed my presentation making skills, and my speaking skills. I have never had to present work in a non-academic setting in the past, so it was useful to learn how to give a style of presentation where the lens of view of the subject may be so different from my own. I also developed my report writing skills, and addressed how to convey technical information to a business minded audience. Finally, I enjoyed learning how a patent is designed and written, and learning the language and logic used in patent formation.
  • Living in Iceland for this internship was fun. Because there were many interns from abroad at the same time, we were all housed in the same location, along with interns from abroad from other companies. It was nice to meet so many different people, and learn about the experiences and cultural differences from around the world. Additionally, having a group allowed us to travel, and experience Iceland on the weekends.
  • I enjoyed hiking, camping, snowmobiling, rafting, biking and sightseeing with other interns, (and employees). It was great to be able to play “football” (soccer) or go bowling or out to dinner with others in the evenings.
  • Iceland was a new experience for me, and living here for a summer has broadened my international perspective. I learned about geothermal resources, and the way people use energy. I enjoyed having 24 hours of daylight during the middle of the summer, and going to Reykjavik’s geothermal pools. Iceland is a naturally beautiful country, and having a chance work in Iceland has provided a broader opportunity than any vacation or trip could’ve provided.
  • I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the opportunity to intern at Carbon Recycling International ( CRI). It was a wonderful learning experience, one which I will cherish for a long time to come.
  • High quality is of significant importance to CRI and to deliver it, I was required to perform multiple checks before releasing work. This inculcated in me a practice of self-check and often left me with insights into CRI’s business which otherwise seemed unobvious. In addition to this I learnt simple workplace etiquette such as documentation, presentation skills, writing and reporting skills and interaction with a multinational and multicultural employee environment – all of which were firsts for me.
  • I would recommend working for CRI to any student looking for an internship experience which allows significant learning coupled with relevant deliverables that could help to shape the company’s future.
  • I am grateful to have had this opportunity of working in CRI, and all the competences gained will be useful in my future career of engineer.
  • Keys to learning at CRI are multiple, the way of presenting my deliverables learning about how to make clear oral presentations, how to be efficient under pressure, and last but not least take time to understand the problem and the way to solve it.
  • Concerning the strategy of resolving these tasks, I learned to structure a problem and to try to solve it via a framework. One of the most important things I will remember for the future during will be: don’t forget to check all the time after finding a result, to observe the consistency of this since it could affect a lot all the work you have done before.
  • When I started my internship at CRI early summer 2010 I was excited to have the opportunity to work in a company that is developing processes to turn emissions to fuels and being a part of a company doing its part for the environment. I wasn’t sure of what to expect but was pleasantly surprised to be welcomed to a vibrant, intellectual environment where everybody was willing to help each other.
  • The other great thing about my internship at CRI was the international environment. Working alongside me were interns from many different parts of the world, including USA, France, India and China. I made great friends and we all had a lot of fun at the office and outside of it. Being around and learning about all these different cultures was fun and is something everybody would benefit from.
  • Becoming an intern at CRI is something I would recommend to anybody interested in having an opportunity to study things in their own field and are ready to learn the demands of the workplace. Doing this in the vibrant environment of CRI and in a group of peers is something I’m very thankful for having had the opportunity to do.
