D3 has kicked off our seventh annual internship program! Since 2010, D3 has offered a rewarding summer internship program for students studying social science, statistics, business development, and graphic design. Candidates are selected from a competitive pool of undergraduate and graduate students coming from universities all over the country.
We are excited to welcome five highly qualified interns to our team. Throughout the summer, interns develop a thorough understanding of the research industry and best practices while working closely with D3 staff to support various aspects of the company. They each bring a diverse range of educational backgrounds and expertise, and we look forward to their contributions this summer. Many of our interns continue on to become full-time employees upon completing their internships.
We are also proud to announce that Angela Ulrich, our statistics intern from summer 2015, has officially joined D3 as an Assistant Statistician. Angela recently graduated from American University with an M.S. in Statistics and received her B.S. from DeSales University in Mathematics. Read more about Angela’s background here.
