My Enterprise internship? The best experience of my life!

I've never felt so much like a novice as I did the day when I started looking for my internship. The thought filled me with dread, but quite quickly Enterprise Rent-A-Car flashed up on my screen. Intrigued at the thought of working for a car rental company, I followed the link.

How I won the Best Placement Student Award

My Enterprise journey started long before I joined the company. I first heard about the Enterprise internship scheme in my first year at University whilst at a SIFE UK Training Event. While it sounded interesting, at the time I had no intention of taking a year out of University. It was only after I had completed my first year at University that I even thought about doing a placement year.

How I won a year in San Francisco

I earned a one-year placement with Enterprise in the United States as part of a competition held among interns in my home country of Ireland. I have to credit my US colleagues for helping make the change from Cork to San Francisco so simple and easy. The people I work with are all super friendly. They’ve helped me with everything really, in what has been an amazing year.
