“As an Intern Ambassador, I make it a priority of mine to provide student interns with several opportunities to lead projects and share their knowledge on current initiatives. Our internship program is a great way for us to see the potential of these candidates, including their strengths, skills and their work ethic.”
- Cathy Maltais, Sr. Director, B2C Solution Lead

 

 

“Interns often bring fresh ideas and unique perspectives on current processes that can be of great benefit to the organization. The ideal intern is someone who can take the theoretical concepts learned in academia and apply them in an organizational setting. They should view their time with McKesson not as a summer job, but as an extension of their learning!”  
- Laura Victoria, Sr. Director, Talent Acquisition
