Just one day after moving to Boston, I started working at ZS as a decisions analytics intern. On my first day, I dove right into work. I attended meetings, contributed deliverables and even had the chance to take advantage of the office’s nitro cold brew on tap. Now, even though it’s just a few weeks in, my ZS internship has been filled with interesting work, lots of learning and, of course, some fun.
In my short time here at ZS, I’ve already started working on two projects. One is a qualitative market research project where my team and I get to interview different healthcare providers to get a sense of how a specific drug can be administered to patients in the most efficient and cost-effective way. The drug is in the last phase of clinical trials, and the client expects our insights to greatly impact their sales and educational support.My other project, which is more quantitative, requires me and my team to gather meaningful insights for our client from large amounts of data, exposing me to how analytically driven ZSers are. Being on both project teams has given me exposure to the wide range of value ZS offers clients, and yet I know there’s still so much left to experience!
Outside of the work, my fellow interns and I have been able to attend many of the office-wide gatherings that ZS puts on. Just the first week I was here, I got to go to one of the many nearby restaurants with the associates in our office to hang out and get to know each other. It seems everyone has a great time with each other, both in and out of the office. I’m certainly looking forward to more of these office activities (including a Red Sox game) happening soon.
It has been an exhilarating few weeks at ZS so far and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the summer has in store for me!
