Between 2014-2016 I worked 18 months as a co-op/intern at GSK in Heart Failure Drug Discovery. I learned advanced biological and analytical techniques and, due to my enthusiasm, I even got a chance to make a drug myself! Upon my graduation from university, I got accepted into GSK’s IT Future Leaders Program. Five months into my IT work, I am getting exposure that I never would have dreamed of.
My lengthy experience at GSK would not have been possible if my coworkers weren’t so knowledgeable, professional, and encouraging. Asking my peers for career advice directly shaped my professional development, formed lasting relationships, and guided me to where I am today. GSK is the type of company that will reward you greatly if you show that you will work hard and learn as much as you can.

An internship or co-op serves as the foot in the door for your career, and the most successful people I know pursued challenging roles in college. Anyone can say that they want to change the world, but it is up to you to prove that you really have what it takes.
