In his search for project experience, Toronto intern found new friends

“What color were the umbrellas in the sky?” was the last question we needed to answer as part of a no-holds barred scavenger hunt on the Toronto Islands. It was a drizzling Thursday afternoon, but it was the summer event for ZS’s office in Toronto.

ZSers are known for their friendly competitive spirit, so every team had carefully developed a strategy during the ferry ride to the island. Some teams started with the easier challenges, some went straight for the highest point challenges and others went straight to the patio for a drink. Regardless of approach, we all ended the hunt slightly wet, tired and confused as to what color the umbrellas were or why they were in the sky. It was an incredibly enjoyable day and an opportunity to get to know my colleagues on a more personal level.

LA intern got lucky this summer at ZS

What makes casino games even more exciting? Knowing all proceeds go to supporting a foundation that rescues companion animals and prepares them for new opportunities. That’s what.

Regardless of how busy everyone gets with their project work, the ZS team makes time to do the right thing for local nonprofit organizations through ZS Cares, our global corporate social responsibility program. This past week, the Los Angeles ZS office held its second annual charity casino night. Throughout the event, ZSers were able to purchase raffle tickets to win donated items. All proceeds were given to the Lange Foundation, a nonprofit organization committed to saving impounded animals. The LA office raised over $3,000 and enjoyed an evening of game-playing.

How a NY intern discovered her best self at ZS

Like many interns, I started off my summer at ZS wanting to explore the opportunities in consulting and marketing. Everything was new at first since I joined ZS with no prior experience and no knowledge of the pharmaceuticals industry.

The only thing I was sure about was that there would be a steep learning curve ahead of me. What’s interesting though is I never once felt overwhelmed or worried that I wouldn’t be able to learn and produce my best work, and that’s because of the people I’ve met here.

From kayaking to "brown bags," one Chicago intern reflects on a summer full of new experiences

Two paddles splashed through the water, the curved blades mirroring each other’s motion. Left…right...left…right.

I sat behind Jake, my mentor, in a bright green two-person kayak. We worked together to travel swiftly through the water while taking in the sights around us.

On this particular day, ZS’s Midwest interns and their mentors were taking a break from their typical project work to spend an afternoon on the Chicago River getting a guided tour of the city’s history and iconic architecture.
