Max Price: Statistics

Max interned as a data analysis for doTERRA during Winter Semester 2022.

Describe a day in your life as an intern.

I would arrive at work and begin by checking my email. If I had received requests I plan out which to start on and determine how long they would take. I would then go and check with the full-time workers to see if they have any other projects they want me to work on. I would then get to work on these projects, asking for help when I would get stuck and go for the occasional drink walk with the rest of the team.
