    Heather McMasters – Learning and Development Intern

     I have enjoyed the past twelve weeks at SICK immensely. At first, adjusting to a 40-hour work week and office life was difficult but I was made to feel welcome right away and was able to bond with my fellow interns. My manager and mentor took time to ensure that my projects required both strategic thinking and creativity rather than sticking me with menial work. My time at SICK has confirmed my passion for learning and development and I feel so much more confident and excited about my future.

I am very grateful for this incredible opportunity to intern at SICK.
