What do our current interns have to say?

Rachel (Business Analyst Intern)

‘’As an International Business student, I wanted to experience working for a company that did business globally. The small size of the intern group appealed to me. Our group includes 6 interns so we get a lot of support, both from within our own departments and from an assigned mentor.’’

Kiara (Business Analyst Intern)

‘’My favourite thing about working in Colgate is the opportunity to really expand your knowledge, and skills while working with genuinely friendly colleagues in an enjoyable work environment. There's something new happening every day from sports and social events to meetings, projects & training. The staff shop, casual Fridays and summer hours are a bonus too!"

PJ (Business Analyst Intern)

‘’Daily we deal with people worldwide and for me this is one of the most interesting parts of the job. Changing category after 6 months also led me to apply, I felt it would allow me to get a more rounded view of how the company functions as well as giving me the opportunity to decide which part of the company I may like to work for in the future.’’
