It has been an amazing time at AXIS. They're building a suite of connected devices that are designed to save energy, primarily in the commercial sector. The technology we are creating automates window shades in commercial buildings and has been proven to significantly reduce energy consumption. It blocks out the solar heat gained during sunny weather, while harvesting natural daylight during overcast weather. I'm very proud to be a part of this process.
It's really important to me to have a green job; but a job in an area that I'm passionate about, that's even better. See Aurélie in action:
The internship provided me meaningful work in the environmental sector by allowing me to monitor the sanitary sewers of new developments to ensure that we are building new homes in the most effective and water-efficient manner. The company I interned at through the CICan Clean Tech Internship program, Civica Infrastructure, hired me full time, permanent once the internship was completed.
Because this internship involves a lot of diverse projects, I'm actually gaining more experience than I would at a single job. See Martyna in action:
The program has given me the experience needed for future employment, and has connected me to many industry professionals.
